Born into affluence, Mia Stanley is a winsome socialite with a knack for matchmaking. She’s also a writer for Godey’s Lady’s Book
magazine, much to the disdain of her family — and their society friends.
A proper young lady of her social standing isn’t meant to labor in such
a way, but Mia has always had a way with words …

When her
writing draws her into the world of downtrodden seamen’s wives on
Philadelphia’s docks, Mia uncovers a scheme that puts her in harm’s way.
But her heart ends up on the line as well … Has her determination to
always make a match driven away the one man whose esteem she covets?
