Set against the background of the beautiful Croatian countryside and its simple villages, DESTINY'S DOWRY is the story of a baby taken immediately after birth to a place she did not belong. Here, she is raised to believe she was born to a woman who died giving birth to her.

When the baby becomes a beautiful girl of 15, her brother-in-law attempts to sell her to a Turk.

Her escape leads her on a journey of danger. She is befriended by a Gypsy Queen, loved by a blacksmith's son, adopted by a woman of means and accused of being a witch because of her knowledge of herbal healing.

The Turk appears on an unrelated matter to the house where Katya now lives. She is betrayed by a woman who wants to get rid of her.

There is murder and danger, as Katya once again leaves, searching for a place where she might belong.
