In 1754 New Hampshire, young Miriam Willard finds herself caught up in the French Indian War, and is captive on a harrowing march north to a life of hard work and perhaps even slavery. Miriam and her companions reach Montreal, and meet the prominent Du Quesne family, who introduce her to a life she never imagined. Based on an actual diary published in 1807.
