Summary
Abducted by the Mohawk at fourteen and renamed Burning Sky, Willa Obenchain is driven to return to her family's New York homestead after twelve years of life with the People. But much has changed: Willa's home is in disrepair; her missing parents are rumored to be Tories; and the young man she once admired, twisted by the horrors of the War of Independence, has claimed ownership of their land. When her Mohawk brother arrives and questions her place in the white world, the cultural divide blurs Willa's vision. As tensions rise between the nearby village and her Mohawk clan, can she find the courage she needs to embrace a new life and a new love?
Summary
"Formerly an Indian captive named Burning-Sky, Willa Obenchain unexpectedly returns to her family's New York homestead after her twelve-year absence. With faith in God and the skills to survive on the frontier, Willa must decide if love is possible as she faces the challenges brought on by her dual identities and an unforgiving land"--
