Set against the backdrop of 1980s Northern Ireland and New York
City, Away with the Fairies tells the story of one young woman's
quest to find love, adventure and happiness. To be away with the
fairies, means that someone is not quite right in the head, and
such is the case with Rosie Maguire. Rosie's story is an old one:
about the unfathomable capacity of one person to love another.
Rosie lives to love and loves to live. Her story is both funny and
tragic, encompassing Rosie's journey from innocence to
enlightenment. Rosie is in love with Jim O'Loan and believes she
cannot live without him. She follows him to New York from her home
in Ireland, where she finds she cannot live entirely with him
either. Rosie's inner conflict is exacerbated by homesickness and
the thought of all she has left behind her in Ireland. Her friends
and family, her ambitions and dreams are put on hold while Rosie
embarks on her great adventure in New York. Also, in the
background, always annoying her, taunting her and making her feel
extremely confused is Sean O'Loan, Jim's older brother. It will
take a major trauma, a return home and a long time before Rosie is
able to fulfil her dreams.
