Publisher's Summary

The acclaimed author of such suspense classics as The Tears of Autumn and The Miernik Dossier brings us a unique period romance, set in early 18th-century Europe and New England and featuring the ancestors of his recurring master-spy, Paul Christopher.

Young, high-spirited Fanny has been fortunate in her civilized upbringing, but the London she has grown up in is riddled with danger and brutality. When a sinister stranger traps her family into debt in order to advance on Fanny, she is forced to take refuge in France, where she meets a young French soldier, Philippe de Saint-Christophe.

Their paths will cross again in the New World, where the war between the English and the French is fought with the help of savage Indians on both sides. Together, Fanny and Philippe will carve out a fierce, adventurous life in the vigorous, untamed wilderness.

What the Critics Say

"This is a remarkable narrative, written in McCarry's honed, imaginative style and packed with historical detail presented not as background but as lived experience....Adroitly depicting passion, brutality, cultures in conflict and New World natural beauty, this novel is as engrossing as it is unusual." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Just didn't hold my attention"

    Wow I'm usually a fan of historical fiction. I really wanted to enjoy this book, but frankly I found it slow and really quite dull. There were parts that peaked my interest but those were few and far between. In truth I stopped this book with only 2hrs left.
