Susannah Whitfield Howard endured 10 years of dull marriage, and now the recent widow isn't about to let society's expectations of proper mourning imprison her a moment longer. She joins Sir Edward Knowles and his aunt, Regina Ramsey, on their trip across Pennsylvania to the western frontier. Once there Susannah tries to erase any memories she might have of boorish Edward with thoughts of Rafe Stewart, the ruggedly handsome mountain man who tries to convince her that the western region of Pennsylvania, soon to become a battleground between the English and the French, is no place for a lady. When Susannah begins to suspect that Edward might be a French spy, she forces herself to spend more time with the foppish dandy in order to find proof, never imagining the real secrets Edward is keeping. While Susannah's stubbornness can be a bit annoying, Herr's wonderful, Scarlet Pimpernelish hero, and her imaginative use of the French and English wars as a historical setting, will please action-loving readers
