Anna eventually makes her way to university and the beginnings of yet another kind of life. Peopel grow apart but the eventual deaths of both Marguerite and her father. The people from the old country assist at the funeral and the book closes with Anna's regret, perhaps anger, at the breach that has been made with her traditions.

The story is told entirely in Gaelic. Chapter outlines are given in English and a glossary of more challenging words and phrses are given at the end of each chapter.
