Lady Flora has been fascinated by Pearce Longleigh, the half-Shawnee son and heir to the Duke of Bellevue, on meeting him as a 10-year-old. When they meet again, she is a widow and her father would like to travel to America, as a means to develop funds as he finds his son, depleting the family coffers through his gambling. Pearce offers to guide Flora’s father and she, having always wanted to travel, invites herself along. This journey becomes an adventure that will change them both. This was a fascinating story, examining American history and American-Indian relationships with Europeans. Flora find herself attempting to survive in an environment that is so foreign to all that she knows but wanting the freedom, that has been denied her in England. Her desire and love for Pearce, makes her such an amazing character as she strives to become the woman, that he can admire. Her transition was fascinating to read about. In many ways, Flora is the dominant character in this novel, and her journey from a young, innocent widow to the strong woman who faces so many battles, was so captivating, that I could not put this book down. There are so many aspects of this book to savour – amazing characters who grow in strength whilst facing adversity. This was such a fascinating time in history, which was so well interwoven with this beautiful romance. I look forward to reading more in this series. I received an advanced review copy from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
