Aileen Doherty can't wait to leave the confines of her sheltered life on the island of Illaunmor to go on her first adventure, tattie picking for the summer in Scotland. What she hadn't bargained for was meeting the irresistible Jimmy Walsh, who falls for flame-haired Aileen the moment he sets eyes on her. Aileen and Jimmy fall passionately in love, until their happiness is cruelly cut short by a tragic accident which will change their young lives forever. Back on Illaunmor, Aileen finds solace in reviving an abandoned garden which has been left as lonely and bereft as she has. Gradually Aileen brings the garden back to life - and herself with it. But it takes a true miracle to finally heal her broken heart
