It is 1754 in Edinburgh, Scotland. Callie Beaton is nearly twenty,  single, and determined not to marry anyone her grandfather deems worthy.  But after her impulsive flight from yet another unwanted suitor leads  her to the pier one rainy evening, Callie is mistaken for someone else  and dragged aboard a ship. Trapped in a dark hold and at the mercy of  strangers, Callie has no idea the ship is headed for a bustling port  city across the ocean in America.

Wracked with seasickness, unable to convince the ship’s captain she is  not who he thinks she is, and with only one scraggly dress to her name,  Callie somehow survives the horrid journey. She arrives in colonial  Philadelphia penniless, nameless, and alone in a strange place. Two men  offer her help: Ethan Asher, a handsome gentleman with a hidden past,  and Davy McRae, a charming ship captain with a dangerous secret. Neither  seems trustworthy, but when tragedy strikes, Callie is caught in the  middle and must choose one of the men to help her if she is to save  herself and her newfound friends from disaster.

In this historical romantic adventure, a Scottish lass who finds herself  in the wrong place at the wrong time unwittingly embarks on a journey  across the ocean to a new beginning where she searches for love,  belonging, and ultimately her true destiny.
