Summary

When Boston ship line heiress Elizabeth Harrison shuns marrying her deceased father’s partner, former slaver Guillaume LeFrank, he decides to sell her. After Elizabeth is abducted aboard a company ship, she stumbles across a list of thirty other women he has sold. Determined to find the women, Elizabeth jumps from the ship and is rescued by a surfman. In that moment, Elizabeth transforms her destiny—and hopefully that of Anna Ulter, the first woman on the list. Anna Ulter has nothing else to live for but her daughter. It has been fifteen years since she moved to Boston to pursue a career on the stage, was duped by LeFrank, sold to Agustin Medina, and taken to Cuba. Now Anna is resigned to a life of slavery—until she sees a ship named Anna Ulter without any idea that Elizabeth, with help from several others, has made it her mission to save her from a horrific fate. Anna Ulter shares the sweeping historical tale of one woman’s determination to rescue thirty women enslaved by an evil man.
