Rhine Ellery is a sixteen year old who has been kidnapped and made to marry wealthy Linden Ashby. While her sister wives are content to remain captive in the comfortable, yet frighteningly sinister, mansion, Rhine is determined to escape and return to her twin brother. Can she make it out before her remaining years are up? Will they ever find a cure for the virus that threatens humanity?
