Though Magnus MacLeish and Lark MacDougall grew up on the same castle grounds, Magnus is now laird of the great house and the Isle of Kerrera. Lark is but the keeper of his bees and the woman he is hoping will provide a tincture that might help his ailing wife conceive and bear him an heir. But when his wife dies suddenly, Magnus and Lark find themselves caught up in a whirlwind of accusations, expelled from their beloved island, and sold as indentured servants across the Atlantic. 

Yet even when all hope seems dashed against the rocky coastline of the Virginia colony, it may be that in this New World, the two of them could make a new beginning - together.

Laura Frantz's prose sparkles with authenticity and deep feeling as she digs into her own family history to share this breathless tale of love, exile, and courage in Colonial America.


Award-winning, bestselling author Laura Frantz is passionate about all things historical, particularly the 18th-century, and writes her manuscripts in longhand first. Her stories often incorporate Scottish themes that reflect her family heritage. She is a direct descendant of George Hume, Wedderburn Castle, Berwickshire, Scotland, who was exiled to the American colonies for his role in the Jacobite Rebellion of 1715, settled in Virginia, and is credited with teaching George Washington surveying in the years 1748-1750. Frantz lives and writes in a log cabin in the heart of Kentucky.


Aimee Lilly has been a voice actor for over 25 years, with experience ranging from radio drama and video VO to nearly 200 audiobooks in a wide variety of genres. She’s one of five readers for the new Immerse: The Bible Experience recording of the New Living Translation. Aimee received an Earphones Award for Kelly Eileen Hake’s Trails & Targets, and an Audie Award nomination for Gracia Burnham’s In the Presence of My Enemies.
