Seventeen-year-old Stella Ainsley wants just one thing: to go somewhere-anywhere-else.
Her home is a floundering spaceship that offers few prospects, having been orbiting an ice-encased Earth for two hundred years.
When a private ship hires her as a governess, Stella jumps at the chance.
The captain of the Rochester, nineteen-year-old Hugo Fairfax, is notorious throughout the fleet for being a moody recluse and a drunk.
But with Stella he's kind. But the Rochester harbors secrets: Stella is certain someone is trying to kill Hugo, and the more she discovers, the more questions she has about his role in a conspiracy threatening the fleet.
