To Sarah, growing up in England around American military children, America, "The Land of Milk and Honey," sounds like Paradise. She dreams of immigrating to a place where anything seems possible. Yet life itself seems determined to thwart her...she has a series of death-defying experiences, and several tragic romances that distract her from her dream. Just when all hope seems lost, however, a handsome "Prince Charming," rescues her, and carries her away to the land of her dreams...just as a psychic medium had predicted. Where the mysterious old lady, reading Sarah's cards, refused to tell her the horrors that were to happen next, the previous suffering Sarah had experienced up until that time was nothing in comparison to what awaited her in America. Abandoning a familiar way of life and starting over again is much harder than she ever dreamed it would be. Dysfunction, domestic violence, and family catastrophe are among the challenges Sarah had faced in her life with much worse to come.
