As the youngest of the Carlisle clan, Lucia has a lot to live up to. And with Baron Lindsey finally out of the way, one would think she'd at least get a clear shot at making her mark.
It's North America in 1889, and the Golden Age of the railway is in peril as airship travel begins to capture the imagination of the entire world--with the help of investigative journalist Nellie Bly and her trip 'round the globe. Lucia is in the middle of it all, helping to build the first airship port Stateside.
But that's not all she's doing. Her missing father is bound for San Francisco, and she needs the help of gifted, troubled railway heir-turned-inventor Henry Wentworth to find him.
The problem is, the railway magnates are determined to see Nellie Bly's historic journey not only fail, but end in tragedy. And the Carlisles are once again caught in the cross fire.
