What happened to Kate? That had been the burning question in Ellie Fuller's mind throughout her research into the life of Liza Marchant. As she read Liza's correspondence and journals, she wondered whether she was ever going to find the answer. She hoped that there would be a happy ending to Kate's story and that she had not died in some primitive Indian encampment. Ellie was still having vivid dreams about Liza, which brought to mind another question yet to be answered concerning the jewellery which, in the year 1840, had been placed in an old Marchant & Fuller safe in Belfast. Liza was still insisting that it was not theirs to sell but if it did not belong to Ellie and her brother Eddy, then who did it belong to? As Ellie continued writing, she was amazed to realise that somehow Liza had been brought back to life. She was a little unnerved when she began experiencing the warmth and affection that Liza gave and received from her husband, Patrick; her son, Matthew; and adopted son, John, as well as the people of Liza's beloved American town of Benson and its nearby army post. But life was not always idyllic and sometimes happiness turned to sadness and fear, and at such times Lord Jamie Edgeworth came to the fore to give help and protection to Liza, whom he had loved all his adult life.
