Meghan and Brian are engaged to be married but after their grand engagement party, her life changes. She's now the soul heir of her parents estate, one of which is an old plantation home on Nevis Island, previously owned by Cecil and Catherine Dall in the 1800's. Wanting to know more about the mansion, she decides to take a leave of absence and go to the island. As she is finding out about the history of the island and the plantation, she is told some devastating news and needs to sell the land and house immediately. What will happen to Meg when her parents estate is sold? Meg is worried about her future.

Back in the 1800's - Cathrine, daughter of Cecil Dall own a sugar plantation on Nevis Island. They also own over 200 slaves . Catherine runs the plantation , her father is a drunk and his health is failing. News around the island is that abolitionists are trying to ban slavery in the British Empire. The plantation owners on Nevis are not happy about it but they don't think it will pass. Two men come to visit Nevis, stating they want to learn more about the sugar plantations, but are they really? A neighboring plantation was set on fire and everything is gone, was it arson and did the abolitionist have something to do with it? Catherine is worried about her future, what would happen if they lost their plantation or what if her father died , what would happen to her?

The end of the story will "blow" your mind!

Can't give to much away! If you like historical fiction, i highly recommend this one. I loved reading about the island and decided to see if it was real and ohhhh i wish i could go and see it!
