Inishowen is a story of love found late, of hidden connections and a journey that changes three lives forever. There's Inspector Martin Aitken whose life is a mess. Divorced, his career's in chaos. There are terrible things growing inside his house and the last thing he needs is a collapsed woman in the street on Christmas Eve. There's Ellen Donelly, a woman on a mission, coming to Ireland to find her mother, and escape her husband. Milton Amery is her husband, an unfaithful New York plastic surgeon. All three of their roads lead to Inishowen - a mysterious place that holds secrets that can unlock the heart.
