In the early 1840s in Ireland, Lochlan loves his home Barnakilla but fears that he will have to confront the abusive owner Augustine Caldwell. However, his anticipated quarrel will wait as Augustine has left on his honeymoon in Dublin with his new wife Muirecann. Lochlan prays that Muirecann somehow mellows her spouse into caring more for the well-being of his tenants, but expects she will end up another abused victim. Instead, Augustine commits suicide leaving a stunned Muirecann to return home in scandal.

Muirecann tries to do the right thing with the people working the land though she has pressure from Augustine's family who question why he killed himself when he seemed to have everything to live for. Needing an ally, she turns to Lochlan for help as they share a love for the land. As the potato famine spreads, Lochlan and Muirecann fall in love, but now he falls under suspicion of killing Augustine as he has several publicly known motives.
