When he discovers his wife's strange secret, he heads toward the frontier territory know as le pays sauvage...
Rowan Malone is a beautiful, dark-haired half-breed, and 1812 found her being raised by the Sisters of St. Claire. When her innocence is torn from her by three drunken boys, she too heads for the Shining Mountains to the west. But the land of her mother's people is many hard miles away, and the voyageurs who agree to make the trip look at her with hungry eyes...
When Laurie hears Rowan's screams from the woods, their journey has only begun. It is a journey between two continents, into a wilderness which challenges them to survive. It is a journey between men and women and the desire that makes them lovers or enemies.
