Their future hangs in the balance as the storm of war rises around them.
Tavish MacGregor has never seen the Scottish Highlands, but he feels their call all the same. Orphaned, abused, and robbed of all but pride, he apprentices himself to a North Carolinian shipwright in hopes of returning to his ancestral home. When he meets beautiful, spirited Catalyn Shaw, Tavish discovers a new home and family beneath the longleaf pines. But his cruel master holds a deadly secret over his head, forcing him to choose between escaping to Scotland and staying with Catalyn. As tensions build between the colonies and the Crown, Catalyn faces her own heartbreaking decision--leave everything to be with Tavish, or stay and be torn apart forever.
