Mercy Kaplan doesnt want to be like her mother, saddled with crying kids and failing crops for the rest of her life. Mercy longs to be on her own - until her wish comes true in the worst possible way. It is 1918 and a deadly flu epidemic ravages the country, leaving her utterly alone and penniless.
Mercy soon finds a job with Mrs. Wilder. But theres something unsettling about the woman, whose brother died under mysterious circumstances. And then theres Daniel, who could sweep a girl off her feet if she isnt careful.
