A tragi-comedy set in Ireland at the end of the 19th century. Beguiling, flirtatious Francie Fitzpatrick captivates every man she meets. But when a young English officer betrays her and she sets her cap at the one man her cousin Charlotte has ever loved, the stage is set for conflict.
Somerville and Ross were also the creators of the excellent Irish R.M. stories.
