Yet he's determined to learn more.

Curious about her world, Mark searches through history to discover all he can about the brutal life she's trapped in. But knowledge can be dangerous. Soon he must choose between the risk of changing history or dooming the girl he can't stop thinking about to a lifetime of misery.
