Publisher's Summary

When Elizabeth Middleton leaves England to join her father at the edge of the New York wilderness, she does so with a strong will and an unwavering purpose: to teach school to children of all races - black, white, and Native American. It is December of 1792 when she arrives in a cold climate unlike any she has ever experienced. And she meets a man different from any she has ever encountered - a white man dressed like a native. His name is Nathaniel Bonner, also known to the Mohawk people as Between-Two-Lives. Elizabeth defies her father and shatters convention, but her ultimate destiny, here in the heart of the wilderness, lies in the odyssey to come: trials of faith and flesh, and passion born amid Nathaniel's own secrets and divided soul.


What the Critics Say

"One of those rare stories that let you breathe the air of another time, and leave your footprints on the snow of a wild, strange place." (Diana Gabaldon)

great book; awful recording

The book is 300,000 words long. This abridged audio version is 50,000 long, and the reader makes a mess of the dialects. The book is great, but go for the full length version.

I can say this with complete candor, because Sara Donati is my pen name and I wrote this novel.
