In 1784, Englishwoman Amelia Latimer sails to New Brunswick to marry a man chosen by her father. Amelia is repulsed and refuses the marriage. She is attracted to a handsome Acadian, Gilbert, a man beneath her. Her father threatens to send her home, however Amelia is determined to establish her place in this wild land full of danger. Gilbert fights the incursion of Loyalists from the American war to hold onto his heritage. He must protect his family who have suffered enough, but does he dare unfreeze his guarded heart to court a British soldier’s daughter? Will they find love when events seek to destroy them?
