Mercy Carter's world has never been safe. Death is always near - from the weather, the French and the Kahnawake Indians. It is a brutal life - but it's all Mercy knows.

One frozen night, Mercy wakes to the sound of screaming and the smell of burning in the air. The Indians have come. And Mercy's worst nightmares are about to come true.

But she isn't killed. Mercy is captured - and, along with many of her friends and family, she is dragged on a 300-mile trail into the unknown. Freezing, starving and exhausted, some of them don't make it. And Mercy must find a hidden strength if she is to face the new life that lies in wait. But is this slavery - or a kind of freedom?
