"Had I known that you were the Harriet Beecher Stowe of the modern woman, I would not have handed you an open bottle of cordial while on a train..........." Beattie Amey's search for a long lost brother takes her from Devonshire to Australia in 1885, and along the way she meets an American architect; one who makes his views about her profession as a writer offensively clear. Before long, Beattie finds herself, and her newly found brother's family, caught up in planning the rescue of the architect's kidnapped son. Loving him merely complicates an already impossible situation.
