"It's 1752, and the French and English are engaged in a bloody war for the American Colonies. When Jessica Matthews, daughter of English settlers, is set upon by a band of Iroquois, Noah Wilde, trader and spy, comes to her defense, defeating them single-handedly. While Noah recovers from wounds received during the struggle, he and Jessica fall in love. But when Noah leaves for Virginia to meet with the governor, Jessica's homestead is attacked and only she and her baby brother survive the massacre. Jessica is taken captive by the Iroquois. Noah is betrayed by the governor and imprisoned."--Library Journal
