Seventeen-year-old Katherine Greenwood is desperate to escape the confines of 19th century London and her wretched life on the streets. Born to privilege but impoverished by circumstance, she seeks refuge in India — a land she has heard about almost from her infancy. But life on the subcontinent proves more difficult than she imagined. Friendless and nearly destitute, she finds herself an unwelcome guest on a tiny indigo plantation, and at the mercy of its handsome but brooding master, Charles Mendenhall.
Broken and bitter from the deaths of his parents a decade earlier, Charles is consumed with only one thing: saving his beloved indigo plantation from seizure. But when his charitable sister invites the penniless Miss Greenwood to stay with them, his entire world is turned upside down.
Intrigued by the broken man to whom she is indebted, Katherine slowly begins to unravel the truth about Charles’ past, and in the process, makes a place for herself in his heart. But a beautiful young Englishwoman is a rare sight in Calcutta, and Katherine soon draws the attention of the dashing Lieutenant Marcus Bradford as well.
Drawn to the elusive Mr. Mendenhall, flattered by the handsome lieutenant, Katherine’s heart is pulled in opposite directions — entangled in a web of love and loss from which she will not emerge unscathed. India was her refuge, but unless Katherine can rein in her traitorous heart, she will leave the land of her dreams more broken than ever before.
