From the teeming ports of colonial Britain to the exotic shores of the Far East, the two clans fought to carve their place in history-one born to wealth and nobility, the other thrust by an act of betrayal into a world of devastating hardship.

Their lives inexorably woven together, they will travel halfway around the world to discover the fate that awaits them...BENEATH THE SKY1837. Eighteen-year-old Queen Victoria ascends the British throne, ushering in a tumultuous age of expansion.

The tiny island nation vies for supremacy of the seas, seeking new trade routes to the East and setting England against the ancient Celestial Empire of China. As the first shots of the conflict are fired, the tempestuous destinies of the two family lines are played out. Ross Ballinger, son of a prosperous tradesman, sets sail for China, where the raging Opium War plunges him into a storm tide of dangerous adventure and ill-fated love. Aristocratic Zoe Ballinger fights for prison reform, while hot-blooded Connor Maginnis vows vengeance against the all-powerful dynasty that ruined his family name.
