At the wood’s edge cultures collide. Can two families survive the impact?
The 1757 New York frontier is home to the Oneida tribe and to British colonists, yet their feet rarely walk the same paths.
On the day Fort William Henry falls, Major Reginald Aubrey is beside
himself with grief. His son, born that day, has died in the arms of his
sleeping wife. When Reginald comes across an Oneida mother with newborn
twins, one white, one brown, he makes a choice that will haunt the lives
of all involved. He steals the white baby and leaves his own child
behind. Reginald’s wife and foundling daughter, Anna, never suspect the

When the long buried truth comes to light, can an unlikely friendship
forged at the wood’s edge provide a way forward? For a father tormented
by fear of judgment, another by lust for vengeance. For a mother still

another unaware of his twin’s existence. And for Anna, who loves them
both–Two Hawks, the mysterious Oneida boy she meets in secret, and
William, her brother. As paths long divided collide, how will God direct
the feet of those who follow Him?
