Aimee Amelia McKay was an innocent lady of society until she met
Marcus Alexander, who told her everything she wanted to hear.
Against her father's wishes, Aimee ran away to California with
Marcus and wound up an abused, neglected, and battered woman. After
managing to hold onto a few of her mother's jewels that Marcus
hadn't yet gambled away, Aimee escaped, bought passage on a ship
heading to South Carolina via South America. Finally, she would be
free but with no place to go, she only hoped she would be able to
start a new life far from Marcus' reach. During the voyage, Aimee
learned the ship's cargo hold was full of gold from the mines in
California, headed to New York. She also met Abram, an elderly
Jewish man, whom she befriended. However, that trip would never see
New York City. While in he warm gulf waters, the ship ran into a
hurricane and began to sink. Only women and children were allowed
into the lifeboats but before Aimee was lowered down, Abram thrust
his satchel and money belt, both filled with gold, to her. Watching
from a distance, the women witnessed the ship sink believing every
man left aboard perished. When the survivors arrived in Charleston,
Aimee had a plan. She would escape not only the chance of Marcus
finding her, she would become someone else completely - someone
Marcus would never recognize. Arriving in Sycamore Grove, Aimee
settles into life as Mack Kaymey, a wealthy man who lost his
family, and with ill health, only wishes to buy a home and remain
secluded for the rest of his life. But when a young, Negro boy
appears, Mr. Kaymey discovers a camp of run-away slaves living
nearby, and sets out to help them. But it seems that no matter how
well we cover our tracks, the past and the truth has a way of
finding us. Can Mack Kaymey avoid Aimee McKay and her problems
forever, or will Love's Golden Dream finally find her in spite of
