Singapore in the 1860s is exotic and yet terrifying for a penniless Englishwoman, alone and vulnerable after her mother's death. Too pretty to obtain a governess's job, Isabella Saunders accepts an offer from Singapore merchant Mr Lee to teach him English and live with his family.

Two years later Bram Deagan arrives in Singapore, determined to make his fortune as a trader. Mr Lee sees a way to expand his business connections and persuades Isabella to marry Bram.

Bravely, she sets sail for a new land and life. But the past casts a long shadow and together she and Bram face unexpected dangers. Will they find a way to achieve their dreams of a successful trading business?

And will their marriage turn out to be more of a love match than they ever could have dreamed?

MEDIA REVIEWS
'A compelling read' * Sun on FREEDOM'S LAND *
Impressive grasp of human emotions. * The Sunday Times *
Anna Jacobs' books are deservedly popular. She is one of the best writers of Lancashire sagas around. * Historical Novels Review *
Jacobs excels at creating vivid, memorable characters. * Booklist USA *
Vivid insight into family relationships * Coventry Evening Telegraph *
'A gripping storyteller.' * Sunday Star Times, Auckland, NZ *
This is a fascinating insight into a piece of Australia's history that receives little attention. * Newcastle Herald, Australia on FREEDOM'S LAND *
With more than 50 mostly romance books under her (garter) belt, the author is more than adept at spinning a yarn and her characters, surprisingly enough, are a particularly engaging lot... whose back stories, which run to petty jealousies, domestic violence and even murder, are carried along nicely by Jacobs' pacy writing and eye for historical detail. As romantic fiction goes, this one's a winner. * The Daily Telegraph *
