Publisher's Summary

Western North Carolina, 1787. To escape a threatening stepfather and an unwanted marriage, Tamsen Littlejohn enlists the aid of Jesse Bird, a frontiersman she barely knows, to spirit her away from Morganton, North Carolina, west beyond the Blue Ridge Mountains. Trouble pursues, as the two men intent on seeing her recovered prove relentless in their hunt. Trouble awaits in the form of a divided frontier community.

Across the mountains the State of Franklin has been declared, yet many settlers remain loyal to North Carolina. Chaos reigns, thwarting Tamsen and Jesse's hastily cobbled plan to keep her safe. With her pursuers ever nearing, the region in turmoil, and neighbors grown suspicious of her presence, Tamsen's safety is soon put in greater jeopardy. Gaining the freedom she longs for will mean running yet again, to the most unlikely refuge imaginable - the Cherokees, a people balanced on the knife edge of war. But the biggest complication may prove to be Tamsen's growing bond with her knight in greasy buckskins, Jesse Bird.

Falling in love was never part of the plan.

Fantastic!

Just like the rest of her books Lori Benton has done it again. Another wonderful story well narrated. It was hard to put down. I kept finding myself wondering how the characters were faring and couldn't wait to get back to see what happened next. I highly recommend it.

Refreshing

A little "safe" historical romance, adventure & life faith lessons. Great, easy listening reading. Like the characters as well.

First Lori Benton book

This is my first book by Lori Benton. The store was wonderful. It keeps you wanting to know what comes next. Kate Forbes narration was excellent, you could see all of the characters. Can’t wait to listen to my next book by Lori.
