It is the year 1900 and the Boxer Rebellion rages in Peking. Willow, the innocent sixteen-year-old daughter of a missionary, sees her father killed before her eyes, and is only saved from a worse fate herself by the gallantry of Captain Ian Padgett. Willow must put her childhood behind her and learn to cope with the stresses of war, but can she find happiness too in such a world?
