Bhí cúrsaí crua ar Áine Ní Néill ó thús. Agus í ag teacht ar an saol i gCiarraí i 1921, fuair a mháthair bás. Bhí comharsa mar mháthair nua aici, agus thug sise togha na haire di. Ní furasata an saol a bhí ag Áine, agus nár bhreá léi saibhreas a fháil – punt sa ló, abair…?
Imíonn sí léi go Meiriceá tar éis teacht in inmhe, agus post mar chailín aimsire na Goldbergs, lánúin ghustalach Ghiúdach i Chicago. Buaileann sí le Noel, a chuireann an-spéis inti, ach tá fúithi fanacht dílis don fhear atá ag feitheamh léi ag baile. Ach nuair a fhaigheann sí amach go bhfuil iníon na nGoldbergs sáinnithe sa Ghearmáin agus slua Hitler sa tóir uirthi, siúd léi féin is Noel tríd an Eoraip ag iarraidh í a fhuascailt óna gcúcaí….
Fitear eachtraíocht, rómánsaíocht agus greann ina chéile san úrscéal seo, leis an gcumas mealltach inste is dual do Mhaidhc Dainín, agus tréimhse uafásach staire mar chúlra. Ní haon ionadh gur ar an saothar seo a bhronnadh an duais don úrscéal éadrom is fearr i gComórtais Liteartha an Oireachtais.

Life was tough on Aine Ní Néill from the start. When she was born in Kerry in 1921, her mother died. Her neighbour was her new mother, and she cared well for her. Life was not easy on Aine, and she wished to get rich – a pound per day, say…?
She goes to America after coming of age, and works as the Goldberg’s house maid, a Jewish couple in Chicago. She meets Noel, who shows great interest in her, but can she stay true to the man waiting for her at home. But when she finds out that the Goldberg’s daughter is trapped in Germany and Hitler’s people after her, who but herself and Noel go through Europe trying to retrieve her from their grasp….
There is adventure, romance and comedy together in the novel, with a terrible period of history as background. It is no wonder that this work has been awarded the prize for best light novel in the Comórtas Liteartha an Oireachtais.
