Sean Thornton has returned from America to reclaim his homestead and escape his past. Sean's eye is caught by Mary Kate Danaher, a beautiful but poor maiden, and younger sister of ill-tempered "Red" Will Danaher. The riotous relationship that forms between Sean and Mary Kate, punctuated by Will's pugnacious attempts to keep them apart, form the main plot, with Sean's past as the dark undercurrent.

The names "Michaeleen" and "Og" (or Oge, same thing) are both terms of affection. "Michaeleen" simply means "little Michael" in the same way that Colleen means little girl or Kathleen is little Kathy, and "Og" means "young". So by saying "Michaeleen Og" his friends are simply calling Michael Flynn "young little Michael". (A Kilbeggan-born grandfather was called "Thomaseen" (Thomasheen) by his siblings, as he was the youngest.) See more

Well, then. Now. I'll begin at the beginnin'. A fine soft day in the spring, it was, when the train pulled into Castletown, three hours late as usual, and himself got off. He didn't have the look of an American tourist at all about him. Not a camera on him; what was worse, not even a fishin' rod.
