Its 1890, Mary Ellen is twenty and Annie only sixteen. Annie falls in love with Edwin, a young farm boy, but both need their parents’ consent to marry. The rift between their families, caused by their different faiths, means that permission will never be granted. Heartbroken, they part, and Edwin falls in love with Mary Ellen, not realising, at first, she’s Annie’s estranged sister. When he is of age, he and Mary Ellen marry, deepening the rift between the sisters, but his and Annie’s love for one another never dies. Can broken hearts be mended?
