Set in 1855, number-one best-selling, multiple award-winning Book Two of the Threads West, An American Saga series continues the tale of five richly textured, complex generations of unforgettable personalities of differing cultures. The secrets of the maps are revealed, and suspense builds as they push westward, hurtling toward unknown destinies, propelled by one adventure, danger, romantic twist, and encounter to the next.
Forged in the crucible of history, shaped on the anvil of a dangerous land, the threads of their lives and torrid loves interweave with the evolution of the West. Armed conflicts, the rancor of slavery, and the discovery of gold, all create lethal surprises when the characters are forced to defend their lands, their loved ones, and their honor. The tragic story of the Indians begins to unfold. New characters with dark hearts, lost souls, and hopeful innocence color the tapestry of this epic saga. Others, in search of place and rightful freedom, catapult into the story.
An unexpected convergence of events sets in motion the thrilling, yet heartrending conclusion of Book Two, setting the stage for the arduous crossing of the Continental Divide, and the passionate tumult of the next Maps of Fate era novel of the Threads West, An American Saga series: Uncompahgre.
