Luke was not happy to have Jennet back in his life, as the War of 1812 is about to begin, he doesnít have time to court her the way he would like. He is unwilling to tell anyone the part he will be playing in the war, as he doesnít want to let his people know what he will be doing.

She was once a healer, but she didnít come back home to be a healer but nonetheless that is what she found herself doing.
If you enjoyed the first book in this series, Into The Wilderness, then you will enjoy this second book. I gave the book a low rating because of the many various characters in the story, as it was difficult to keep them straight at times.
