He ponders his future, but there is none without his beautiful Em. Banished by his vindictive father to the colonies, and separated from his love in England, the choices to him are few and none for Em. Especially as his father has the power to seal her fate.
Disembarking at the port of Cape Town, a life-changing encounter takes him on a journey through a hostile and dangerous country. It’s no place for a woman, but Em is different. And as he starts to embrace his new life, his scheme begins to take shape - if he has the courage to set it in motion.
