In turn-of-the-century Florida, a
family comes of age, and a daughter finds her destiny entwined with a
land as full of promise as it is danger.
The steamy, sweltering banks of
Florida’s Ocklawaha River don’t look much like Glory Land to
young Eve Stewart, despite her father’s proclamation. But it’s
here that Eve, her three siblings, and their parents will settle in
July, 1875. Within a few years, Eve’s father, Hap, has made good on
his assurances. They have a large, weathered clapboard house and a
comfortable life, thanks to Hap’s job on a steamboat.
Eve and her twin sister, Ivy, are
blossoming into young women. Yet as Ivy grows more involved in
medicine making under the tutelage of a neighboring black woman, her
path leads away from the family.
Eve, an aspiring writer, loves her
home though she longs to see the wider world beyond its swamps and
shores. But when she discovers a secret Ivy’s been keeping, Eve
must decide between protecting the family name or saving her sister.
With the help of a half-Creek Indian tracker, Max Harjo, Eve sets out
to find Ivy, beginning a journey that will dare her to follow her
ambitions and her passion wherever they lead.
