On a rundown farm in Ireland in the late 1980s, widowed Minnie O'Brien remembers the past. Looking back over the years she recalls her courtship and marriage to craftsman-farmer Peter, the love of her life. She remembers their lives; the births of their three children and what has become of them. Brendan, the eldest son, goes off to be a missionary in Africa; Sheila, the only daughter, becomes a nurse at Guy's Hospital, then makes an unhappy marriage with a rich Englishman; Frankie, the late arrival, seeks freedom in Australia and loses touch - but Minnie waits confidently every day for his knock at the door.
