When Carrie discovers Arnold's secret, she is determined to make a life for herself in Secunderabad. 

She still pines for home in Whitechapel, even though she isn't sure what would be waiting for her should she ever return. She knows if Arnold has his way, she will be in Secunderabad, as his wife and hostess, a trophy wife, until he has reached the pinnacle of his ambitions. 

With Pearl by her side she feels stronger, and with Dorothy's continued encouragement she works to become someone she thought she could never be. Her feelings for Captain David Lawrence have not changed, but in the world in which they live, and the mores of the time, she knows she must tread carefully. As the weeks wheel by and Carrie becomes more confident in her abilities she knows things must change. 

Join Carrie as she continues her spell-binding journey into love and independence, and discover what happens when she makes a decision that will change all their lives!
