Controlled by her new and nefarious employer, Zerah Colburn, Lizzy quickly finds herself bound for New York on board the worlds largest passenger liner, Brunels steamship Great Eastern on her maiden voyage. In America, Lizzy is trapped in a bewildering chain of events, including a bizarre wedding in a glitzy New York hotel. Lizzys problems compound as she is forced to cross the Atlantic once more, this time headed for London where she is the victim of a maelstrom from which she is determined to escape. A private detective provides Lizzy with valuable information while Fate also gives Lizzy a helping hand. Free at last, Lizzy falls in love with a doting Norwegian engineer while remaining dogged by her dark and troubled past. Here in this account Lizzy unveils her inside story of life with Zerah Colburn.
