Sarah Feight has her life planned with a loving husband, a promising new settlement, and big dreams to shape the future of trade on Pennsylvania’s frontier. An Indian attack at dawn changes everything.
When he pulls his freight wagons into Fort Pitt, Leith McCully never dreams he’ll be conscripted into the militia and ordered to defend the fort. Worried about trader friends on his delivery route, he rides to their settlement and returns with Sarah, the only survivor.
Fort Pitt is crowded to twice its capacity with the settlers who have taken refuge there and surrounded by the rising smoke of burned-out settlements. Tempers flare, disease breaks out, and the constant fear of the next attack has everyone on edge.
Cully keeps an eye on Sarah because he feels responsible for her. And, though he doesn’t admit as much, she tugs at his heart. Sarah sees Cully as the last link to her past. A friend of her husband’s family. She’s going to need someone she can trust, and she trusts Cully. Her rescuer.
Are trust and admiration enough to help them survive the siege and its devastating consequences? Is there any hope for a future beyond?

His ambition lies in moving west and helping to settle the Kentucky wilderness. Meg McCracken’s brothers – and her father – are gearing up for the war with England. She searches for a blacksmith to make their soldier kits. She doesn’t expect to find a handsome man with dusty-gold hair and an engaging smile. A man far below her station in life. Alexander can’t stop thinking about the fiery-haired beauty who’d entered the family’s smithy, but she comes from a fine family who will hire him but never entertain him. He’s convinced that the coming war won’t change that. His only chance to rise above his circumstances lies across the mountains, and he’s determined to go. But others – including some in his own family – see his goal as an act of cowardice. Alexander and Meg’s paths cross again several times, and in the end, they both have a choice to make.
