This story is set during a time when slavery on plantations still was the normal thing. Grace has a secret about her life, one that might prohibit the handsome merchant sailor, Giles Courtney, from wanting to marry her. Yet, given the chance to help her nursemaid, the girl can hardly refuse his courtship.
As the two set sail on their new life, Grace must cope with her own past and develop a sense of trust in her new husband. With so many secrets between them in their marriage they become easy targets for trouble, and trouble does find them.
