Phillip Winslow and his sister Amelia arrive in New York during the Roaring Twenties and throw themselves into establishing careers. Amelia is determined to be a Broadway star, while Phillip becomes a lawyer. Though dedicated to fighting crime, Phillip finds himself in love with the daughter of the very mob boss he has committed to shut down. Amelia, meanwhile, owes her career to a wild member of the mob and refuses to soften her heart to the pleas of those concerned for her safety. Both Phillip and Amelia are at risk. Can God get their attention before they are enveloped by danger?
While studying for his law degree, Phillip Winslow has found his niche working at Thornton Stables. His sister, Amelia, is still searching for something that will bring her happiness. Her rebellious nature, once kept in check by a desire to please her missionary parents, finally breaks free from those restraints. Against her family's wishes, she becomes a nightclub singer and dreams of making it on Broadway.
While Amelia has gangster Tony Morino's bodyguard to thank for jumpstarting her career, Phillip finds himself drawn to Tony's daughter. As both Winslows are pulled further and further into a dangerous underworld, everything they hold dear is threatened.
