Publisher's Summary

In 1676, an unlikely pair - a young Puritan widow and an English spy - journeys across a land where greed and treachery abound.

Prudence Cotton has recently lost her husband and is desperate to find her daughter, captured by the Nipmuk tribe during King Philip's war. She's convinced her daughter is alive but cannot track her into the wilderness alone. Help arrives in the form of James Bailey, an agent of the crown sent to Boston to investigate the murder of Prudence's husband and to covertly cause a disturbance that would give the king just cause to install royal governors. After his partner is murdered, James needs help too. He strikes a deal with Prudence, and together they traverse the forbidding New England landscape looking for clues. What they confront in the wilderness - and what they discover about each other - could forever change their allegiances and alter their destinies.

    "Excellent historical novel"

    A very good historical novel with a little bit of mystery thrown in. The aftermath of King Philip's War for the Puritans of Boston. Both the Indians and the Colonists fought a dirty battle in Crow Hollow. A very interesting story line combined with an excellent narrator makes for a great book.

    "Excellent historic lessons"

    The story was very predictable. But the historic setting and background was wonderful. The author did a great job of putting you in the time period.

    Story
    "unlikely reader"

    I read 95% nonfiction or technical material. I listened to the sample narration of this book and was intrigued by the woman's voice. After reading the synopsis and reviews decided to take a chance on it. I wasn't sure that I would make the 10 hour stint. Turned out I listened to straight though! Rosemary ' s amazing voice had alot to do with it
    The story held my interest even though I'm not a overly sentimental guy,but I felt a strong sense of empathy for Priscilla and actually shed a tear. I'm glad I did take a chance.

    "A wonderful work of American historical fiction"

    If you like the novels of frank Yerby and Frank Slaughter of a generation (or has it been two?) ago or even like good westerns--yes, perfect! A New England western, you'll love this adventure filled with history, mystery intrigue and romance.

    "Great historical fiction."

    Thoroughly enjoyed this story. A little of everything - suspense, mystery, action, history and romance.
    As a fan of historical fiction this book is one of the best. I can already picture the movie it could become.

    A widow has lost her husband in an attack by Indians but knows not why. The King's man from England is in the Colonies to find out about the loss of his agent. The widow's child was taken by Indians. She wants her back. It is a story that is engrossing and well told.

    I am a voracious reader of all fiction genres and poetry. I occasionally venture into humor, history, and science. I loathe self-help books.

    Story
    "Nearly Adequate and Forgettable"

    There are a few moments when the story almost reaches a basic level of adequacy, but it never manages to hit that mark. The plot and dialogue seem to be a fill-in-the-blank exercise from a middle school creative writing class, and the characters are one dimensional. Also, the author and editor didn't care enough to correct errors: the hero wishing to spend Christmas with his living father when the father's death is described early in the book, or the heroine's muddled timeline that suddenly changes months into years. The narrator is neither bad nor great. Overall, the entire experience was forgettable.

    Did you know you can put in a set of Ear-Buds, slap your Hearing Protectors over them, and Mow the lawn, Weed-Eat, etc, without your book being drowned out by engine noise? OR, you can just let the horses in the yard, and THEY'LL mow and weedeat (literally) FOR YOU!

    Story
    "Not what I thought it was, but enjoyable break"

    I was looking through "Recommended Sci-Fi And Fantasy based on your purchases" (I buy about 1 book per day on Audible, and have for almost 11 Years now) and I *THOUGHT* this book was a Fantasy Book...

    It's not. It's Fiction based solidly in the Semi-Early Colony Days of the USA. I came away feeling like it was basically a "James Bond, In His Majesty's Service (Pre-1776), mixed with romance" Book. Still it was an enjoyable listen and a nice little break from hard-corp Fantasy and Sci-Fi.

    "Great!"

    Not being a big fan of mysteries or Westerns, I was hesitant to try this book. Some of the descriptions didn't sway me, but the ratings were consistently good, and I knew that the narrator was very good. So I took the plunge!
    Wow! I'm very glad that I did. The story held my interest all the way! An interesting backdrop of Puritan ethics and hardship pathos; a great story with an even greater narration!
