"Content Burns" chronicles the parallel stories of two women from the same family, who bear the same Puritan name, and who are separated by three centuries. They are unknown to each other, but both women must learn how to survive historical traumas that changed the course of American history.

The first Content Burns, born a Pequot Indian, was originally named Asawanuw (Corn-silk), survives both a small-pox epidemic and the Pequot Massacre as a child. Given in servitude to the colonial Burns family, she converts upon her marriage into that family and takes the name Content as a sign of her acceptance of her fate. But she finds she cannot escape the after-effects of the massacre of her family and her tribe in 1637 at Mystic, Connecticut, a massacre that significantly altered relations between the English, Dutch and tribal peoples, and contributed to not only the bloody King Philip's (Metacomet) War, but also to the much later witch hunts that rocked the New England coast.

And the contemporary Content Abigail Burns, nicknamed Cabbi, survives, purely by accident, the loss of the Twin Towers on 9/11, having swapped her restaurant shift with a co-worker. Damaged by the fluke of her survival, Cabbi is still healing from that trauma as she nurses her dying mother, and searches, as Content Burns before her, for a new way forward.
