Winner of the 2011 National Historic Research and Preservation Award from the Daughters of Colonial Wars.
Based on a true story, this novel brings back to life Hannah Hawks Scott, whom Joseph Anderson called the most afflicted woman in all New England. Born to a soldier of King Philip's War, Hannah found herself caught in the inevitable clash of two cultures. Yet, she was not alone in her affliction. Drawing on many sources, the author weaves into Hannah's story the tale of a fictional Pequot boy whose life redefines the word 'massacre'.
Spanning the 1637 attack on the Pequot Fort to the 1704 raid of Deerfield, Massachusetts, and through Queen Anne's War, this novel delivers a powerful examination of the conflict between Puritan colonists and the First Nations of North America. Follow the lives of Hannah and this young boy as they endure the nightmare of war ~ each struggling for family, each struggling for home.
