Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Sweetbriar

Linnet Blanche Tyler fled from her life in London to the wild frontier of Kentucky. There, her caravan was raided by savage Indians, and she was taken captive. But fate had more in store for her. Devon Macalister was a half-breed, passing through the Shawnee tribe when Linnet was captured. He claimed her for his own, and fought to win her from the jealous chief. Now he has taken her to a comfortable life in Sweetbriar, where she earns the respect of the families that reside there. But there is so much more in store for Devon and Linnet, as the brave the wilds of Kentucky, the fierce Shawnee Indians, and their own stubborn hearts.
