That_woman_wayne_clark_cover_6x9

Illness suddenly deprives 17-year-old Sarah Da Silva and her older brother Jacob of a mother, while her merchant father grows frail and increasingly desperate in the face of impending bankruptcy. On the rainy night their father scours the docks of Bordeaux, France, to make his final bid to save his family, his children are kidnapped and forced onto a ship bound for New York City where they’ll be separated and sold to the highest bidder as indentured labor.
Purchased by a merchant whose wealth, backed by a team of henchmen, allows him to dominate the chaotic East River docks, Sarah strikes back, and, vowing to never allow him to put his hands on her again she presses a knife to his neck, demanding her freedom, a roof over her head and the means to start a business. Her leverage? Knowledge that would bring the big man to his knees forever.
