Passionate Isabella Buckley feels like life is passing her by. In her late thirties and yearning for adventure, she is constrained by Victorian England’s gender roles and suffocated by the quiet life she leads with her parents.
But when tragedy strikes on the other side of the world, relatives in the Pacific send an urgent telegram for help, and only Isabella can answer the call. Seizing the chance to escape her stifling existence, she sets sail on an exhilarating voyage of discovery that will broaden her horizons in ways she cannot begin to imagine.
Yet when home beckons, she will have to decide how far she is willing to go in breaking with convention if it means finding love and fulfilling her dreams.
