Author Sophie Schillerabout this book: An island girl with nothing to lose risks everything to save the life of a runaway German soldier and uncovers more than she expected. Abby Maduro is languishing in the house of her spinster aunt and her household of eccentric servants in the floundering Danish sugar colony of St. Thomas. She dreams of becoming a teacher, but is relegated to sewing and mending the neighbors' clothes. When Abby stumbles into a stranded sailor with a mysterious past (Erich Seibold) she seizes the opportunity to save his life, but ends up pulled into a dangerous web of espionage and intrigue when the island's German Consul (the head of a local German spy ring) discovers Erich's presence, and his deserter status, and blackmails him into committing sabotage and murder.

In order to save Erich's life, Abby must call upon a courage she never knew she possessed, and the assistance of a motley assortment of island friends in a deadly race against time before before Erich is handed over to the Allies as a spy. In the end, Abby will call upon all her resources to undermine a ring threatening to launch a German invasion of her tranquil island.
