More info

In 1877 young Johanna McNamara leaves her quiet life on the family

farm and emigrates to America to join her successful businessman

brother Hugh. Full of hope, she is determined to make a success of her

life. However, tragedy strikes before she finds her feet in this new world,

and she must put the care of others before her own needs.

Back in Ireland, farming life for the family continues through the

seasons, with her brother Art struggling to deal with his troubled

son Declan. Sending him to the USA is an option that might

help turn him into a man.

Little does Johanna know what lies ahead, with the arrival of a

nephew whose act of betrayal will blow her life apart.

Set in Ireland, Boston, San Francisco and Nova Scotia, Lives Apart

explores the experience of emigration, both for those who had the courage

to venture across the Atlantic and those they left behind.
