The novel picks up off the back of Written in My Own Heart’s Blood. It’s 1779 in North Carolina, and Brianna, Roger, and the children are back at Fraser’s Ridge. The entire family is together once more.

It’s also the middle of the American Revolutionary War. The Frasers and MacKenzies need to pick a side, and they know the side that will win in the end. Can they remain on the right side of history this time? It doesn’t help that the loyalty among Jamie’s tenants at the Ridge is split, and he’ll need to somehow keep that peace.

The novel will also offer a little more into the world of William Ransom. He’s struggling to come to terms with the truth of his parentage. That’s not all that surprising considering what that would mean.

We’ve already had some of the Daily Lines that tease some of the stories to come. There are a lot of main plot points to cover still.
