The story Nobody's Child begins in Ireland in 1847 in County Cork and is retold by the author as it has been passed down through her family over the years until the present day. It is not a tale of woe and despair, but rather a moving tribute to Aine and Molly Murphy, but especially Aine. It tells of their triumph over adversity and of the great courage, strength, spirit and hope within them. Live with Aine and Molly through a nightmare journey that took them far from their Irish home to the shores of America where they were "adopted" by Irish-born Ma and Pa Ryan who, with a large brood of their own, had enough love in their hearts for these two young children. Thrill at the wonders awaiting Aine in America and be amazed by the golden thread of her spirit, which from the beginning to the end of the story anchors her so effectively that nothing and no one could vanquish it.
