|Plot Summary of Dawn on a Distant Shore|
This sequel to "Into The Wilderness" begins in 1794. Elizabeth and Nathanial Bonner have comfortably settled into marriage and family life, and Elizabeth is pregnant with twins. However, Nathanial learns that his father has been arrested in Montreal. Reluctanly leaving his pregnant wife behind, Nathanial journeys to help his father. However he soon finds himself imprisoned as well, and in danger of being hanged as a spy. Elizabeth takes her newborn children and goes to Canada to see if she can help. But while in Canada the children are kiddnapped and taken to Scotland. It seems that Nathanial's father is a cousin of the Catholic Earl of Carryck, and therefore an heir to the Earldom. The Earl wants him to inherit in order to keep the land out of protestant hands. The Bonners follow the babies to Scotland, and get them back, but they refuse to take the Earldom as they don't want to leave their home in America. Events are further complicated when a surprise from Nathanial's past shows up.
