An endless ocean. A ship full of women she’s never seen before. A small wooden box containing the remnants of her life.
Clutching her few belongings Gisella is shipped to strange shores to meet an unknown husband.
Sold and abandoned by her father into a nunnery, Gisella sails to the shores of New Orleans with her sister Casket Girls to provide French wives for the gentlemen of the fledgling city.
A gentleman husband of her own and an uncertain future.
Passengers whisper that the filles a la cassette are vampyre. But while the girls laugh at such silly superstition, they disguise their own fears that they are to be brides of such a monstrosity...
