Two stories converge on Orcas Island, when a beautifully embroidered sleeve is discovered beneath a step during an estate renovation. Inara, owner of this future boutique hotel, feels compelled to learn the history carried by the sleeve. Mei Lien's story surfaces from her swimming for her life toward Orcas in 1886, due to the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1862. In this wonderfully woven debut novel, Inara's story uncovers shameful family secrets, while Mei Lien's story is one of love and courage. Two women and a sleeve become the beginning to righting the wrongs of the past!
