In 1871, Chicago is unaware of the great tragedy ready to unfold. The class struggles that were evident prior to the fire will be strengthened during the city's rebirth, and an obedient Livia Haas must find her own strength during the transition. Affected by a first love, a deceased brother, and a sinister acquaintance who threatens her life and family, Livia Haas is forced to question literal and personal lines, as well as those that exist in the lineage from which she is born.
