The sequel to the bestselling Into the Wilderness is an epic tale of romance and adventure, from the savage beauty of the New World to the wilds of Scotland.
It is February 1794, and while fiercely independent Elizabeth Bonner gives birth to twins, her husband, the frontiersman Nathaniel, learns that his father has been arrested in British Canada.
Forced to leave Hidden Wolf Mountain to help his father, Nathaniel - known by the Mohawk as 'Between-Two-Lives' - is himself imprisoned and in danger of being hanged as an American spy.
In a desperate bid to save her husband, Elizabeth bundles up her infants and sets out on the
dangerous trek to Canada. Once there, she discovers that freeing Nathaniel will take every ounce of her courage and inventiveness - and will even threaten her with the loss of what she loves most- her children.
Torn apart, the Bonners must embark on another perilous voyage, this time to the heart of Scotland, where a destiny they could never have imagined awaits them . . .
