After several months of seeing each other, Clinton asks Abigail to be his wife. Elated, Abigail accepts. That night, the African fiancée receives a threat by a hand-written letter, stating that if she doesn't step back from Clinton, some horrible harm would come to him. Abigail's heart is shattered, but she knows she could never be held responsible for her loved one's death.
Abigail meets with Clinton under the cover of the next night, and coldly returns the engagement ring, hoping against hope that her manner would turn him away from her, and toward safety.
A year later, Abigail is finding it harder and harder to stay safe in the community that brands her more as an animal then a human, and boards a ship to travel to a distant relative, leaving behind all dreams of a life with Clinton.
Clinton hears talk of Abigail Simmons leaving, and makes plans to board the same ship. Events that followed Abigail's rejection made him believe that it was more out of intimidation, and less out of a change of heart, and the man is eager to restore the link their souls once owned.
However, things don't go quite according to plans, and a wild storm lands the two of them on an island, stranded. As events unfold, it seems the prejudice that held the two apart still lurks on the island. Abigail and Clinton discover others on the island, but would failed to discover the scheme that they had in mind until it's too late.
Though the trials and hellish trauma, Clinton strives to show Abigail that no matter the views of their society, if she lets go of the fear that shackles her heart, love will allow them to unite.
But even Clinton starts to doubt if he can chip the cold lies and hatred away from Abigail's heart before they completely freeze and distort any hope of them becoming as one.
