Book descriptionThe daughter of a Mohawk mother and French father in 1759 Montreal, Catherine Duval finds it is easier to remain neutral in a world that is tearing itself apart. Content to trade with both the French and the British, Catherine is pulled into the fray against her wishes when her British ex-
fiance, Samuel Crane, is taken prisoner by her father. Samuel asks her to help him escape, claiming he has information that could help end the war.
Peace appeals to Catherine, but helping the man who broke her heart does not. She delays . . . until attempts on Samuel's life convince her he's in mortal danger. Against her better judgment she helps him flee by river, using knowledge of the landscape to creep ever closer to freedom. Their time together rekindles feelings she thought long buried, and danger seems to hound their every mile. She's risked becoming a traitor by choosing a side, but will the decision cost her even more than she anticipated?

I loved this book. I have been trying to find more and more books to read in this time period and was not disappointed when I got the chance to read this one. As with the other books I have ready by Jocelyn I enjoy this author's writing style. She also makes sure that her research really shows. I am sure it was hard for Catherine to have to choose whether or not to help Samuel. The author does a good job of showing how Catherine is feeling through her writing. This book was full of emotions and adventure. This is a must read book of this season.
