This book is very deserving of the 5 star rating, if there was a higher rating, that would be given. I could not believe it when the book ended.I guess that I wanted the book to go on and on.I loved the characters, too numerous, to name, except for Madeline and Ryder.I loved the plot, always kept interesting by the author.I love wolves and was pleased to read about the wolf and his part in the story . Also happy to read about different Native American tribes and their cultures. This book was worth reading. I am looking forward to the next book.
After his father’s death in London in 1796, Ryder Benedict travels to the New World to find answers to his past. He planned to be gone no longer than a year but two years later, in the company of six men from three different tribes who have all come together to help him, he finds himself in the wilderness of the Pacific northwest, far beyond the borders of the American, French and Spanish settlements. When he is attacked and injured by a wolf, a young white girl with extraordinary instincts saves his life. Named Esa-mogo'ne’ by the local Bannock, she takes Ryder to their village to heal and over a bitter winter Ryder learns of her tragic past and discovers a love that will endure his whole life.
