Three women, born generations apart. One mysterious book that threads their lives together. Based on the real life of Gladys Spencer-Churchill, the Duchess of Marlborough. A century after Gladys's heyday, a young woman's quest for the Duchess takes her from a hamlet in the English countryside to a dilapidated manse and, ultimately, to Paris. In the end, she not only solves the riddle of the Duchess but also uncovers the missing pieces in her own life.

As the American Navy is fighting a losing battle against Japan in the Solomon Islands, Vice Admiral William Halsey is tasked with making drastic changes to the strategic plan. One of his new appointees to a destroyer command is Harmon Wolf, an American native from Minnesota whose aggressive tactics will change the fate of the battle for the Pacific.
