In the year 1774 in the Ohio Kentucky frontier, the Colonists begin taking over the Native American territories. Philip must leave his pregnant wife Clare and their four-year old son Jacob, alone on a mountain trail. The Shawnee Indians take Jacob and hold him captive. Philip does not return and Clare must find the best way possible to get her son back.

My thoughts...

An engaging story of the white man and Shawnee indian trying to learn to live together. The two main characters are so likeable, each with their own powerful stories to tell. Both are strong willed and have been hurt so are careful not to let someone get too close. This is not a sappy tale, it’s one of faith, patience, and believing in God’s timing. Vivid detail and wonderfully written, you feel the sense of loss and fear in Clare as she struggles to bring her sons home. You want to find out what happens yet you feel saddened as you near the end of the book.

I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.​ ​
