In 1946 rural Ireland, Brideen Conway lusts after Kieran McDermott but the couple cannot afford to marry. Meanwhile, wealthy publican Austin Glynn is offering a substantial dowry for any suitable mate for his homely daughter, Aideen. The competition is fierce. Father Donovan plots to acquire the dowry to enable Brideen and other young parishioners to marry and have children; Martin McDermott, the local rake, schemes to get his hands on the money without having to marry Aideen; and then there is Alphonsus Finnerty, secret author of romantic novels, who is desperately seeking a wife.
