Janet Grunstabout this book: In 1770, Heather Douglas, disillusioned and desperate to escape a growing scandal in her native Scotland, signs a seven-year indenture and flees aboard a British merchant vessel headed for the Virginia colony. When a common planter purchases Heather's indenture, her situation grows more complicated. The farmer insists on marriage. When he takes her to his farm, Heather is faced with new and constant challenges. But it is in the Virginia countryside that she begins her greatest journey, one of self-discovery and of faith. Here, she discovers that her emotional and spiritual scars bind her far more than her indenture. Will the liberty she seeks provide her with the freedom she longs for?
Matthew Stewart, a widowed farmer with two young children, needed someone to help raise them. Was God leading him to take this unknown indentured servant as his wife? They each have experienced their own tragedies and still bear the scars. How would these two individuals, from opposite sides of the Atlantic bridge their differences to make a life together?
"This is a wonderful story! It has just the right amount of intrigue, romance, and adventure to keep the reader turning the pages - one of those books I didn't want to finish too quickly but didn't want to stop reading."
