Cornelia Rose decides early in life, almost instinctively, not to allow anyone to limit her to the few choices available to women in New York in the 1850s. Marry well and become a proper lady—is that all I can do? She surreptitiously pursues learning ‘not meant for young ladies,’ and begins the journey to become a midwife.

Flirtatious and sexy, Cornelia attracts suitors everywhere she goes. Flooded with invitations after her ‘unofficial’ debut, her courtships take a dramatic turn when invited to the West Point Military Academy as the guest of a cadet. Will her romantic escapades compromise her choices? Who will decide her future?
