But when he looked at her with those piercing black eyes and called her, "My Maggie," she had trouble remembering anything except that he was a man and she was a woman.
The new world is full of promise, the promise not only of a virgin land waiting to be broken, but also of needy souls waiting to hear the Word. Maggie Lawrence journeys to join her betrothed, Richard Shabedge, in the colony of Roanoke in 1587, where they plan to be missionaries to the Native Americans.
But it is one Native American -- Towaye -- who challenges her emotions and spiritual strength more than any other man. When Richard sails for England, Maggie finds herself drawn to the company of this intriguing native. But his presence becomes more to her than pleasure. To marry Richard was a part of her duty to God, she thought. Towaye made her stop and wonder. In the perils of the American wilderness, her life depends on Towaye's strength even as his soul depends on her witness.
