Abandoned by her husband in England, a desperate woman struggles to build a new life for herself . . . Born into a wealthy English family and raised in Chicago, Ellie is used to a life of luxury. When she met Max Berman, it was the best thing that had ever happened to her, but her father, president of the Union Atlantic Railroad Company, was absolutely against a marriage to the son of Russian Jews. Still, Ellie was determined to be with the man she loved-even if it meant sacrificing her fortune. Ellie and Max, along with their four-month-old son, William, journey across the Atlantic to Southampton, England to start a new life. Max, goes off to sort out the immigration papers, while Ellie waits with William and the luggage. But then more than several minutes pass, and the crowds have died down. He's nowhere in sight. Then, a porter gives Ellie the shocking news that Max was seen boarding the ship returning to America . . . Desperate and penniless, Ellie seeks out her English grandfather, Sir Robert Cromer. Finding her way on her own will be a struggle-and so will banishing Max from her heart. But for the sake of her son, and herself, she is determined never to be at the mercy of a man again . . .
