"In 1862, Arabella Lawrence fled past mistakes on a bride ship. Vying for her hand are two very different men who disagree on how the natives should be treated during a smallpox outbreak. Intent on helping a young girl abandoned by her tribe, seeking what's right may cost her everything"-- Provided by publisher.
Based on the bride ships that left England's shores in the 1860s destined for Victoria on Vancouver Island (which was at that time still a colony of England and not yet part of Canada)
