The Winds of Carpathia set between 1887 and 1913, chronicles the struggles of Alzbeta Orlovska, abandoned by her father, Julius; and lover Gustav; then forced into relinquishing her two illegitimate children to her jealous sister, Anoushka; and into marrying the corrupt, manipulative Max Persche. Despite the caring intervention of Gustav's father, Zdedush Barnas, and escaping from her husband to work as a governess to the wealthy Czech/Russian family the Kostechkas at Stara Ves, the largest plantation in Slovakia, her past cannot evade her when she finds her daughter Anna working in the same house as a maid to the scheming Baroness Maria and her intrusive sister Anastasia. Soon Anna falls for their employer's oldest son, Janov, whom they have destined to become a priest. Against his parents' blessings, he seeks to marry Anna and immigrate to America; but, after their nuptials their love must survive the turmoil and consequences of Alzbeta's transgressions, jealous, vengeful and manipulative in-laws and the tragedy of Titanic.
