Two sisters, Thea and Kay, live aboard one of the last merchant ships to sail the South Pacific in the early 1900s. After the death of their father, Thea is free to marry her love, the captain of a ship. But she will not abandon her younger sister, so Kay comes aboard too, and together they embark on a life-changing voyage through the South Pacific and around the Cape of Good Hope. After Thea experiences a devastating miscarriage, she "purchases" a young boy from an island in Micronesia for four tins of tobacco, adopting him as her own. The repercussions of this act reverberate through the story.
