The love between a Union officer's daughter and a Cherokee man is threatened by the Civil War in this sweeping romance by a New York Times–bestselling author.

A "passionate tale of Native American history, family feuds, and romance," this saga by a multimillion-selling author begins in Springfield, Massachusetts, in May 1860 (Booklist). The Civil War looms as nineteen-year-old Diane Parmelee, spirited daughter of a Union officer, reunites with her former childhood sweetheart, the broodingly handsome Cherokee Lije Stuart. Passions flare once again between the blonde beauty and the accomplished Harvard University law student. But as two hearts come together, the promise of marriage is short-lived. Despite her undying love, Diane can't bring herself to accept Lije's conditions for their future.

Lije expects them to build a life where his proud allegiance lies—on the plantations of his Cherokee family, and in turn, the Confederacy. But for Lije and Diane, it's only the beginning of a conflict that will tear families apart and reopen the wounds of violent rivalries born out of the historic Trail of Tears. It will end only when divided loyalties and revenge threaten to shatter the meaning of heritage and honor. And through it all, only true love can hope to survive.
