This was a very readable novel set in Canada and the US at the time of the War of 1812. Mark Greenow is a young Quaker from the north of England who sails across to Canada in search of his missing sister Rachel. She had accompanied their aunt to do missionary work, and was disowned after she met and married a Scot fur trader Adam Mackenzie who did not belong to their sect. After the loss of her baby, she went missing in northern Michigan. Mark’s arrival at a time of war, his travels with the voyageurs, and encounter with the Indians challenge his strongly-held convictions.
