Penniless, pregnant, and newly widowed
immigrant Rachel Gordon doesn’t believe
her situation could get any worse…until
she meets her new neighbors.

Shortly after the War of 1812, Rachel and her husband
set out from England for a plantation in South Carolina,
which he had purchased sight unseen. However, while
en route, Tom Gordon fell overboard and drowned,
leaving Rachel, frightened and alone, to make a home
for her and her newborn.

Can a battle-scarred American physician who comes to
her rescue also heal her wounded heart?
