Granda and Celia have gone to Galway to search for him.  Nory's friend Sean has taken his mother and Nory's brother Patch to Galway to catch a ship to America.  And now Nory is on her way as well.  There is nothing left for them in Ireland but hunger and death.  Not wanted to leave but knowing she must, Nory sets out on a harrowing journey to 416 Smith Road, Brooklyn.
