The intertwined lives of two kindred souls with ambition begins when
Captain Whip Hoxworth discovers that Nyuk Tsin has been smuggled
aboard as part of cargo on The Carthaginian, which he captains, a cargo
supposed to consist of only male Chinese workers bound for Hawaii.
Nyuk Tsin was kidnapped from her Haaka village to be sold to a
Honolulu brothel. She is spared when Mun Ki claims she is his wife, and
Hoxworth goes along with his wife's suggestion that they can work in
the Hoxworth household as domestic servants. Nyuk Tsin becomes
known to all as Wu Chow's Auntie (Aunt of Five Continents) when her
five sons are named after continents (with Mun Ki's wife in China
regarded as their official mother). Whip founds an empire in pineapples,
using Japanese laborers, after smuggling his first seed crop from French
Guiana as Wu Chow's Auntie grows a family business in Honolulu around
her sons.
