Nora takes on Paris, mixing with couturiers, artists, and les femmes Americaines of the Left Bank such as Gertrude Stein and Sylvia Beach. But when she stumbles into the centuries-old College des lrlandais, a good- looking scholar, an unconventional priest, and Ireland's revolutionary women challenge Nora to hor her Irish blood and join the struggle to free Ireland.
