Elizabeth and Nathaniel Bonner have settled into their life together at the edge of the New York wilderness in the winter of 1794. But soon after Elizabeth gives birth to healthy twins, Nathaniel learns that his father has been arrested in British Canada. Forced to leave Hidden Wolf Mountain to help his father in Montreal, Nathaniel himself is imprisoned and in danger of being hanged as a spy.

In a desperate bid to save her husband, Elizabeth bundles her infants and sets out through the snowy wilderness and across treacherous waterways on the dangerous trek to Canada. But she soon discovers that freeing her husband will take every ounce of her courage and inventiveness—and will threaten her with the loss of what she loves most: her children.

Torn apart, the Bonners must embark on yet another perilous voyage, this time all the way across the ocean to the heart of Scotland, where a destiny they could never have imagined awaits them.

    " This is book 2 of a series based on the children of the characters of The Last of the Mohicans. I know the characters, so I enjoyed reading this book. It's really long, which is the kind of story I like to read/listen to in the car. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 5/7/2011

    " Not quite as good as Into the Wilderness, but still a good read. Love the characters, and I'll definitely be continuing with the series. "

    " This was not as good as the first one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hendo | 3/4/2011

    " Better than the first one, but seriously, they're totally Outlander. I probably only like these because I liked Outlander so much and she hasn't written another one yet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meg | 3/4/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jodi | 2/14/2011

    " Another great book! This book moves the location of the action but is still so good! Can't wait to continue on with this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 1/15/2011

    " Book 2 in the series. I really liked the first one, and was not disappointed with this one, either. It is very reminiscent of Diana Gabaldon's series, without the supernatural aspect, however. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mandy | 1/8/2011

    " This sequel to Into the Wilderness was a little more unbelievable than the first book, but I really enjoyed it all the same and am looking forward to reading the third book in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 12/8/2010

    " I am really enjoying this series! If you enjoyed Diana Gabaldon at all these are up your alley, minus the time traveling. I love the bits of information on the Indian's that lived in the northern new york area, makes me want to delve into learning all of that again. "
