Three iconic Atlantic crossings are connected by a series of remarkable women whose personal stories are caught up in the swells of history. Spanning the onset of the Irish potato famine in 1845, the American Civil War and the more recent troubles in Northern Ireland, it is an epic and engrossing story of slavery, poverty, struggle and survival.
