Ireland, 1988, Elizabeth Kelly's parents think she belongs at home: her boyfriend is certain of it. But, unwilling to settle down just yet, Elizabeth decides to spend the summer in Boston.

Extended Catalogue - available to order. takes between 1-2 weeks to deliver

The year is 1988 and like many Irish students, Elizabeth is on a J1 visa in America.

Crammed into a wreck of an apartment with some college friends, life in Boston is haze of hot summer days and nights of sneaking into bars with no ID.

Elizabeth has left her boyfriend back in Ireland and plans to return to normal life as soon as her visa expires. Her plans become askew when she falls for local boy, Danny, and embarks on an intense summer romance.

She spends almost every minute with him and it becomes apparent that they are soul mates. But can love be enough when your future is based on the other side of The Atlantic? Flash forward twenty years, and we see Elizabeth as a mother of two, marriage crumbling and watching her eldest head off for a summer in Boston.

Memories come flooding back and when her daughter needs her to follow her to America, Elizabeth comes face to face with her past.
