About The Book:
It is 1653 and Heather Flower, a princess of the Montaukett tribe, is celebrating her wedding feast when a rival tribe attacks, killing the groom and kidnapping her. Though her ransom is paid by an Englishman, she is bound by her captors and left to die--until she finds herself rescued by handsome Dutch Lieutenant Dirk Van Buren.
Still tender from her loss, Heather Flower begins to heal in the home of the Hortons, English friends of her people. Torn between her affection for Dirk and her longtime friendship with Ben Horton, Heather Flower must make a difficult choice--stay true to her friend or follow her heart.
Exploring a unique slice of history, Rebecca DeMarino transports you to the wild land that would eventually become Long Island, New York.

This was book two in the Southhold Chronicles series, and I quite enjoyed this book. It was well-written, and very apparent that much research went into the writing of this book to make as authentic as possible for the reader. I loved all the characters and the progression of developing them as the story went on. The book kept my attention throughout and was very pleased with it overall.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
