It’s 1915 when young Bess Ravenhart, recently widowed, leaves her baby son Frazer with her mother-in-law, Cora, while she sails from India to Britain to set up a home.

But Frazer trails danger in his wake, and it’s possible that not only he but also Bess and her whole family will live to rue the day of his return…
