Stella Ainsley leaves poverty behind when she quits her engineering job aboard the Stalwart to become a governess on a private ship. On the Rochester, there's no water ration, more books than one person could devour in a lifetime, and an AI who seems more friend than robot. But something sinister lurks beneath the Rochester's immaculate fa ade.

When Stella meets Hugo, the nineteen-year-old captain at the helm of the ship, she finds herself drawn to the mysterious boy who's as unpredictable and broody as he is kind. But Stella's suspicions against Hugo mount as the ship is plagued by ghostly hauntings and deadly assassination attempts. Now, she must choose between following her heart or listening to her head.
