The story of one woman's survival and quest for peace - for herself and for others - in a country threatened by the flames of war. The year is 1812 and Hannah Bonnet has returned to her family's mountain cabin. But Nathaniel and Elizabeth can see that Hannah is not the came woman as when she left. For their daughter has come home without her husband and son, and with a story of loss and tragedy that she can't even bear to tell. Yet as Hannah resumes her duties as a gifted healer, she finds that she is slowly healing herself. Little does she realise that she is about to face her greatest challenge ever. Hannah is called away to the war to perform one final act of courage, duty and sacrifice. And in risking everything once more, she may learn to live - and even to love - again. " One of those rare stories that lets you breathe the air of another tune. " Diana Gabaldon.
