Montreal, 1740. As the French and the English battle for control of North America, Louise Demarillac struggles for independence from a husband and a father whose demands for her proper behavior are squeezing the joy from her life. When British forces invade Montreal, both men - with Louise's five year old son - must flee for their lives. As Louise searches for her family in the American wilderness, she fashions a new life that gives her the freedom she craves - but threatens to tear her family apart.
