When Bridie Chance discovers that her much-loved father is a highly successful criminal, and now dead, her world is shattered. With no home or friends and almost no money, she has to care for her family. But in this world of new people, how can she know who will be friends or enemies? Bridie holds a secret that she does not know she possesses, a secret many desire. As she struggles to support herself and her family amid the life of an Edwardian music hall, Bridie meets with failure and success, finds love, heartbreak, and danger. It is only when she endures a nightmare ordeal beneath the shadow of the Capricorn Stone that the masks are cast aside and the true faces of her friends—and enemies—are revealed to Bridie and the hope of a new life in America is awakened.
