Mercy lives in a frontier town in new england, the year is 1704 and the indians have come. Mercy is taken captive and begins her long three hundred mile marvh towards Canada and her new home.
An emotional book that will grip you and find yourself unable to put down.
The book considers the historical fact that when this did happen in the past and when the 'hostages' were free, some didnt return to their past lives with the remnants of their past families, but remained with their new Mohwak or Huron families. Mercy was a real person, perhaps her story was not the same as what the book tells but we know that she did remain with her Indian family.
The book was really good, the characters were strong and brave. Although i read it in one sitting i really liked the story, the context and the way it was written.
Based on true events, this book explores many different themes with honesty and heart. I found it a compelling read and would recommend to all age groups - a star find.
