When Indians raid the Charlestown, New Hampshire, home of Miriam Willard one morning in 1754, Miriam and her family are taken as captives on the start of a frightening journey. Miriam goes from the Indian village to life as a prisoner of war in Montreal, where she gains a better understanding of a culture she has been taught to hate. Speare's work is as relevant for teens today as it was over forty years ago. The language is slightly more sedate than in more recent titles, but Barbara Caruso's narration manages to communicate Miriam's changing emotions and opinions, as well as the different social spheres of Miriam's French masters and friends.
