New York Times bestselling author Jude Deveraux’s timeless historical romance set in the Kentucky wilderness featuring a woman whose life was changed forever in a few terrifying moments.
When her wagon train is ambushed by renegade Shawnees, beautiful young Linnet Tyler is the sole adult survivor. Taken prisoner, alone in a harsh land, she faces an uncertain, terrifying future with a steely courage that belies her fragile beauty.
Thanks to his Shawnee grandmother, Devon Macalister is as much at ease roaming the forest trails with his Indian cousins as he is in the little settlement of Sweetbriar where he makes his home, and he is determined to rescue this lovely captive. But the dangers of winning Linnet’s freedom and their hazardous journey through the wilderness to safety are nothing compared to the perilous dictates of both their hearts.
