Publisher Description

Life for indentured servants in pioneer Virginia is hard. It is doubly hard for Richard Ayre, a London orphan who had been scooped off the streets as a child and sent to the Jamestown Colony. But a chance encounter with an Indian boy his own age gives him a friend, the first real friend he has had in years—until his master’s plan to raid an Indian village for corn turns Richard’s world upside down. Soon their friendship and loyalties will be put to the test.
