Georgiana Highett is a sophisticated, intelligent, and strong willed woman of Victorian England's upper classes. However, her vulnerability is exposed when her childhood sweetheart Stephen Lockhart comes walking back into her life. When Stephen is drawn to lower class dressmakers and their strange, new religion, she becomes reactive and hostile. In addition, amoral Darrel Fredericks is sniffing around the family secrets guarded by Georgiana's brother Thomas, as well as infiltrating her sister Catherine's virtue. Religious movements, class conflicts and personal enemies all work to bring Georgiana and those she loves into their increasing dangerous pull. She only has her wits and her personal strength to draw upon in her attempt  to protect the security of her family... and her heart.
