I see a premise but neither crisis nor stakes.

D. E. Jackson - Thank you for your input. Would this be headed in the wrong direction:

Bridget O’Connor left Ireland with her family in 1850 when she was 14 years old. Cathy MacGrew is Bridget O’Connor’s last living descendant. Cathy is unaware Bridget O’Connor ever existed. Cathy is 50 years old and had little to show for her or her ancestor’s existence.

Bridget O’Connor left Ireland with her family in 1850 at age 14. Is Bridget the story's central figure? What does she need and what gets in her way and what does she have to lose? If I take the challenge to hold two names in my brain and do some math (both of which I prefer to avoid), I might conclude that Cathy is the subject instead. What does she need and what gets in her way and what does she have to lose?

D. E. Jackson , thank you, much to think about.
