When Sarah Carr’s husband Jamie drowns, her young life is shattered and takes a turn she never expected. Pregnant and now widowed, she reaches out to Jamie’s family for help but they’re unwilling. Instead they devise a plan to have her kidnapped and taken to the Colonies to live a life of servitude.

In the wilds of Maryland, Sarah endures the hardships of being indentured and the debasement of being a woman. In despair, she offers up faithful prayers that are answered. But Sarah’s new life in the Colonies finds her surrounded by a family’s whirlwind of secrets, while she hopes the young doctor she loves will bring her freedom.
