Having fled the turmoil of Scotland, Elspeth Monro is learning to love her life in 1775 North Carolina. She likes her new friend and her weaving apprenticeship. But as Loyalists and Patriots strive to recruit her neighbors, a shadowy figure threatens her family.
Davina Porter's nuanced narration highlights the polished prose of Kathleen Ernst, nominee for Agatha and Edgar Allen Poe awards.
"Absorbing....This well-told story has an intriguing plot, and details about the Scottish settlers and life in the Colonies are carefully integrated into the narrative. The element of mystery keeps readers guessing and the family's betrayer is truly a surprise. Each character is three-dimensional, with complex reasons motivating his or her behavior."
