When Merry fails to prove her case, she’s convicted of larceny and sent to colonial Virginia as an indentured servant. Now she must find a way to survive an ocean away from her beloved home in England … and a way to silence her heart. She couldn’t help but recognize the magistrate, Graham Sinclair — her first love until he disappeared from her life. Far from healing old wounds, his sudden reappearance has brought nothing but fresh hurt.
Ever since condemning Merry, Graham is haunted by her memory. When he discovers her innocence, he obtains a pardon and pursues her. But by then Merry is embroiled in a new mystery — one that Graham won’t let her face alone.
