About the Book
The fourth son of the Comte dí Artois was raised to be a French noble. Nothing but his swordsmanship prepared him for life after his fatherís death. The first son inherited the title. Arrangements had been made for his brothers and sisters. Why were none made for Jean-Marc?

Forced to be self-supporting at sixteen, he accepts an offer of passage to New France.

Stranded on the coast of Maine, he struggles to survive. Befriended by natives, then taken prisoner by English colonists, he is sold into servitude. Bought by a brewer in Boston, he learns a trade and falls in love with Abigail. Jean-Marc kills their brutal master to defend her. They run for their lives into Pennsylvaniaís wilderness, only surviving with the help of Tamaqua, a Lenape warrior.

In time they use Jean-Marcís brewing skills to build a new life for themselves, but nothing stays hidden forever.

What will they do when they are found out?
