Colorado, 1875.
Anne MacEilan once had everything she needed. She had loving parents, a house full of siblings, and a happy life in Galway, Ireland. She wasn't rich in money, but everything else was perfect.
It's gone now. All of the family, save for four of the children and their father, is dead. Their father has left them for drink and women, and the rest of the family emigrated to America.
America isn't at all how they thought it would be. There's thieves and disease all around them- just what they hoped wouldn't be there. 
Life has never treated the MacEilan family well... but will they be able to beat the odds, and make a life for themselves on the harsh Colorado soil?

Aw 😥 this is crushing. Just read Les Miserables recently, parents leaving kids really happened. So sad...

Thank you for the dedication! Your story is in my library, I will get round to reading it sometime. Being a small percentage Irish myself, I like stories about them too!
