Mercy Carter is a young girl living in the English colony of Deerfield, Massachusetts. One dark, cold winter night, her life changes forever. Indians attack the settlement, kill many people, and take the rest captive. Mercy is seperated from what is left of her family and taken to live in an Indian village where she is adopted into the tribe. As the years go by, Mercy must struggle with her identity and what culture she belongs in, the one she was born into or the one that took her captive yet treated her well.
