Two lives. One great love tested by a ruthless slave trader and a frightening wilderness. Dreaming of building a better life, Stephen and Jane Wyllie set out across the American frontier in 1797 in search of a place to call home in a land of unimaginable beauty. But as they journey through the unexplored wilderness, will this strange land tear the family apart?
Weaving a tapestry of history, romance, and adventure, Dorothy Wiley's epic novel sweeps us into an awe-inspiring, heart-stopping story of love and survival in an emerging America. With undaunted courage and boundless daring, Stephen, along with his five brothers, bravely plunges through a wilderness full of terror. But this formidable thousand-mile journey threatens everything Stephen and Jane care about. His courage is undaunted, her passion is deep, but the wilderness is full of terror. Stephen is a hero who won't back down, but will his dream cost him what he values most--Jane's love?
This riveting tale brings readers along on a heroic and breathtaking quest for land across a thousand perilous miles to the Kentucky wilderness--a new world for the brave. Stephen wants only one thing more than land--to keep his wife Jane and their young daughters safe. But he needs land to make a better future for his family, and the frontier lies open to settlement in the new state of Kentucky. The decision to go is not an easy one, and Stephen carefully weighs the risks before undertaking what he knows will be a dangerous journey.
