A love story about past secrets and future hopes, set in nineteenth-century Baltimore, by national bestselling author Karen Harper. In 1835 Baltimore, Violet McClellen encounters a dark stranger putting lilies on her mother's grave. In confronting the man, she learns that hes Captain Nathan Stone, the son of a man with whom her mother had a long, unrequited romance. While learning about that relationship from Nathan's father, Violet and Nathan fall in love. But Nathan is about to leave for a three-year voyage to China and refuses to promise himself to Violet in the face of a long separation and the uncertainty of his return. It seems equally impossible to bring Violet with him; he refuses to risk her safety is such an alien and dangerous place. Ultimately, however, he realizes that he can't risk losing the chance to be with Violet, and he returns for her and the promise of an adventurous life together.
