As elegant as the Sacramento residence she operates, Isabell Labrie embraces the 1850s California Gold Rush by staking her claim on the city's refined clientele. But then, unexpected guests-fugitive slaves seeking safe passage to the North-force her to confront her past and reconsider her path. While Isabelle learns to trust God's provisions, a law student in Virginia must confront his father's cruelty and rescue a young slave from his family's tobacco plantation. As the two escape to freedom and Isabelle risks everything to harbor runaway slaves, the past and present are set on inevitable collision course, one that reveals hidden treasures of the heart.
