Desperate to escape a marriage arranged by her aristocratic London guardians and to wed her childhood sweetheart, beautiful but innocent Catherine Parke secretly boards a ship bound for the New World. But the shock of what greets Catherine in Jamestown nearly destroys her. Catherine's betrothed, now a successful trader, has an uncanny way with the Powhatan Indians.

Vivid historical details bring the Jamestown settlement and Indian villages to life.
