Sailing aboard her father's shop is all seventeen-year-old Camille Rowen has ever wanted. But as a lady in the nineteenth-century San Francisco, her future is set. On her last voyage before she must marry a man she does not love, Camille learns about a life-changing secret that lies in Australia. When their Sydney-bound ship goes down in a gale, and her father dies, Camille sets out to find her long-lost mother and a map that could lead to an even greater and more dangerous secret-a stone that can bring back the dead. Throughout her journey to uncover the truth and to ressurect her father, the only person Camille can depend on is Oscar-her father's handsome first mate-who is in love with Camille and whom she is inexplicably drawn to, despite their differences in social class. Along the way, Camille faces many treacherous obstacles, but nothing so dangerous and forbidden love and an uncertain future.
