This third and final book in the popular Corwin-Chandler trilogy answers all of the questions posed in the first two books, "Too Far to Whisper" and "Too Near to my Heart." It takes place 18 years later, in the year 1673, and features Autumn Rose, the beautiful daughter of Rosalind, an Englishwoman; and Shadow Runner, an Indian sachem. Tired of her primitive life in her father’s village, Autumn leaves for Boston, seeking adventure in the world of the English. Through a series of lies, she manages to pass as white. All goes well until she meets a distinguished older man named Nyles Creede, who introduces her to his life of wealth and luxury…and to his charismatic son, Ethan. Autumn gives her heart to Ethan, but must conceal her true heritage from him and his father, both of whom openly detest Indians. But to Autumn’s dismay, as her relationship with Ethan grows more serious, the Creedes insist upon meeting her family…the English family she has invented. Also in this book, Rosalind finally confesses to Shadow the secret about Nathaniel she has been concealing from him during their entire marriage.
