New York City, 1897.

Cara Hamilton had thought her brother to be dead. Now, clutching
his letter, she leaves Ireland for America, desperate to find him. Her
search leads her to a houseful of curious strangers, and one man who
claims to be a friend–Rourke Walsh. Despite her brother’s warning, Cara
trusts Rourke, revealing her purpose in coming to New York.
She’s then thrust into a world of subterfuge, veiled threats, and
attempted murder, including political revolutionaries from the homeland
out for revenge. Her questions guide her ever nearer to locating her
brother–but they also bring her closer to destruction as those who want
to kill him track her footsteps.
With her faith in tatters, all hope flees. Will her brother finally
surface? Can he save Cara from the truth about Rourke… a man she’s
grown to love?
