This beautiful love story between two unlikely people combines action, mystery and, of course, romance in 1778 Illinois Country and Northwest Territory. One of the top new Christian novelists to emerge on the scene, Carie writes with her heart on every page of her books.

Isabelle Renoir is a free spirit who would rather dance alone in the moonlight as her gift to God than have to cook and clean. Samuel Holt is a spy for the Americans who's trying to gain information to help with the American Revolution. When he and Isabelle are thrown together, he has to keep his wits about him to lead them both to safety. Isabelle and Samuel try to ignore their feelings for each other, but they're in a losing battle. When they're abducted and held captive, they must work together to find freedom.
