Sweetbriar

When her wagon train is ambushed by renegade Shawnees, beautiful young Linnet Tyler is the sole adult survivor. Taken prisoner, alone in a harsh land, she faces an uncertain, terrifying future with a steely courage that belies her fragile beauty.

But the dangers of winning Linnet’s freedom and their hazardous journey through the wilderness to safety are nothing compared to the perilous dictates of both their hearts.
