Inspired by Scotland's history and enlivened with extensive research, with a page taken out of the Outlander Bible... Four children and their mother have found a new home in 1824 Nova Scotia, but ghosts haunt their steps. A strong sense of justice leads Neil to push for an investigation into the death of their father, Gillan, while religious prejudice and economic disparity threaten Muirne's fragile happiness with a young doctor. And what will become of their rock, their anchor, the twine that holds the family together, Sheila MacLean? As the family attempts to put down roots and grasp new opportunities, old enemies and new challenges test their strength and loyalty. Will they become part of this new community they've chosen or be torn apart and scattered to the winds?

This edition has also been rearranged for clarity and includes updated illustrations, appendices, bibliography, and assignments. A robust suite of learning aids is available for purchase to be used alongside the textbook to help students excel in their studies.

Decker Thorne learned early life-lessons on the streets of London, stealing to earn his way. That devil-to-pay existence does not prepare him for someone like Jonna Remington, a fiercely independent woman who is not impressed with his charm or cunning. As owner of Remington Shipping, what Jonna needs is Decker's deft touch at the helm of her finest clipper. With the Remington fortune riding on Decker's success, Jonna is vulnerable and beholding, and when her daring plan gives rise to new dangers, it is Decker who puts his life on the line to save hers. On board Huntress, the clipper she owns but where he is master, Decker can keep her safe from everyone but himself. As they make the Atlantic crossing from Boston to London, Jonna must decide how safe she wants to be, or if Decker has stolen the one thing she did not know she had to give...her own reckless heart.
