Memoirs of childhood in Ireland, a sentimental novel of an Irish village that sits at the edge of sparkling Destiny Bay. The story concerns the marriage of an Irish nobleman to a gipsy in 1889, and romance among his descendants. Destiny Bay was adapted by Tom Geraghty, John Meehan, and Brinsley MacNamara as the script for Wings of the Morning (Harold Schuster 1937), being Britain's first Technicolor feature movie; the score was sung by John McCormack.
