Can one good deed change a life?

Matilda is just a poor flower girl trying to make ends meet in London’s Covent Garden. That is, until the day she saves Tabitha.

Matilda is welcomed with open arms into Tabitha’s minister family and given the chance of a lifetime to leave her world behind.

Leaving the slums of London in her past, Matilda embarks on an adventure that will change her live. Travelling to New York and across the Wild West, Matilda finds herself in San Francisco.

Amid the craze of the gold rush, Matilda and Tabitha forge lives for themselves among the other pioneers, finding happiness and even love. But as the civil war approaches, will Matilda have what it takes to keep those she loves together, or will her new family be torn apart?
