Armed with her mothers recipes, she then makes a bold deal with her fathers aristocratic employer, putting her home and family at risk. Thanks to her fierce determination, Annekes brew wins a following and begins to turn a profit. But her rise threatens some in her community and those closest to her are left to pay the price.

As Anneke slowly pieces her life together again, she finds an unlikely ally in a London brothel owner. Determined not only to reclaim her livelihood and her family, Anneke vows not to let anyone stand in the way of her forging her own destiny.
