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 called 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.

"Pam Ward portrays McCarry's fascinating characters with verve and animation in this period romance. She convincingly depicts the young and high-spirited Fanny as she journeys from London to New England during the French and Indian War with her godfather, Oliver Barebones, and his willful, eccentric wife, Rose. Ward's steady, clear alto sounds tense and fearful when Fanny experiences a night attack by the French and Indians, is captured, and is finally rescued by Philippe, her French lover. Ward's reading reflects the many emotions of these characters, especially those of Fanny and Philippe as they discover a new life in the untamed wilderness. S.C.A.
