Pregnant and alone, Eliza must chance all to fight for her child's life and the cause she so strongly believes in.
With her husband on the run and enemies vowing to reveal her secret, Eliza Drake faces a daunting task alone. How can she bring a mulatto baby into her prejudiced community without endangering everyone she holds dear? Between her childhood friend's wicked schemes, a mysterious widow with eyes for her father, a marshal out for blood, and a shocking murder, it quickly becomes apparent that no one is safe. Her increasing abolitionist ventures only drag her deeper into the fray. And when the last man she expects rides back into town, Eliza must make an impossible choice - a secure future for her child or a past she so desperately wants to cling to.
