Publisher's Summary

In 1676, an unlikely pair - a young Puritan widow and an English spy - journeys across a land where greed and treachery abound.
Prudence Cotton has recently lost her husband and is desperate to find her daughter, captured by the Nipmuk tribe during King Philip's war. She's convinced her daughter is alive but cannot track her into the wilderness alone. Help arrives in the form of James Bailey, an agent of the crown sent to Boston to investigate the murder of Prudence's husband and to covertly cause a disturbance that would give the king just cause to install royal governors. After his partner is murdered, James needs help too. He strikes a deal with Prudence, and together they traverse the forbidding New England landscape looking for clues. What they confront in the wilderness - and what they discover about each other - could forever change their allegiances and alter their destinies.

Nearly Adequate and Forgettable

There are a few moments when the story almost reaches a basic level of adequacy, but it never manages to hit that mark. The plot and dialogue seem to be a fill-in-the-blank exercise from a middle school creative writing class, and the characters are one dimensional. Also, the author and editor didn't care enough to correct errors: the hero wishing to spend Christmas with his living father when the father's death is described early in the book, or the heroine's muddled timeline that suddenly changes months into years. The narrator is neither bad nor great. Overall, the entire experience was forgettable.

- MxH "I am a voracious reader of all fiction genres and poetry. I occasionally venture into humor, history, and science. I loathe self-help books."

Excellent historic lessons

The story was very predictable. But the historic setting and background was wonderful. The author did a great job of putting you in the time period.
