Her stepbrother, Jacob Spencer, escorts her and her friend Amanda Taylor back across the mountains to Williamsburg to visit Jacob's grandparents.

Meanwhile, Sarah has met a Scottish highlander, Seth Donovan, who is fighting for the British. She has closed her heart to love but finds it very difficult to not become drawn to him.
