WOULD YOU RISK
YOUR LIFE FOR JUST ONE DAY OF FREEDOM?
For hardworking teen, Dee Pageau, the
annual employee picnic will let her escape the drudgery of work and possibly
find love with her best friend Mae’s older brother, Karel. But in 1915 Chicago,
girls don’t go on picnics without their mother’s approval.
Dee, Mama has had a premonition of disaster and forbids Dee from going. Forced
to watch as Mae and Karel leave without her, Dee defies Mama and rushes off to
join her friends.
But Dee’s joy soon turns to terror when the ship ferrying
them to the picnic capsizes. Rescued not once but twice-by Karel and a
mysterious sailor-Dee finds herself tested in unimaginable ways. What happens
next turns out to be worse … and better … than anything Dee ever expected.
