Before she even reaches her father's house she meets Nathaniel Bonner. A mountain man, who is more comfortable amongst the Mohawk than the white settlers. Elizabeth's father wishes her to marry the doctor, but she elopes with Nathaniel, and the adventure begins.
From land tussles over Wolf Mountain, the home of Nathaniel and his extended Mohawk family, to dangerous escapades through the wilderness, this is a real page turner.
There is a large cast of intriguing characters, including a brief appearance by Jamie and Claire Fraser, from Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. The Mohawk people are especially well written; their culture and language expertly woven into the story.
I'm hoping to finish it this weekend. Then it's on to the next book in my large pile of 'to be read'.
