"Never forget where you came from."
At the turn of the century and the dawning of the modern world, Gina sails from Sicily to Boston's Freedom Docks to find a new and better life, and meets Harry Barrington, who is searching for his own place in the old world of New England. She is a penniless unrefined immigrant, he a first family Boston Blue-blood, yet they are hopelessly drawn to one another. Over their denials, their separations, and over time, Gina and Harry long to be together. Yet their union would leave a path of destruction in its wake that will swallow two families. The fates of the Barringtons and Attavianos become entwined, on a collision course between the old and the new, between what is expected and what is desired ...what is chosen and what is bestowed ...what is given and what is taken away. Torn and torn apart, Gina and Harry face the cruelest choice of all-between what they cannot have and what they cannot live without.
