"So Many Partings is a big family saga, stretching over three generations of an Irish family who went from rags to riches in New York. Tom Dalton was born in Ireland, the illegitimate child of the younger son of an aristocratic family and the daughter of a local tenant farmer. Upon the death of his father, Tom and his mother Mary are evicted from their cottage. The local priest advises Mary to emigrate to America to start life afresh, leaving Tom at a local monastery where he could receive a good education. Reluctantly Mary does so and many years pass before they meet again. Mary marries a Boston merchant but keeps Toms existence a secret as her new husband would not have married her if he knew of her past.When Tom grows to manhood he too travels to the U.S. and begins a career with Diamond Jim Mulvaney, a very successful business man and local politician. Tom falls deeply in love with Diamond Jim's daughter and so begins the new dynasty of Tom's children and grandchildren--and what a big involved tale it is--a story of villains and heroes, love and hate and all the things that go to making up a terrific read!"
