Like 'its earlier companion novel, The Light in the Forest,' this book is about a young English girl in colonial America who was captured and raised by the Indians as 'Stone Girl,' marries and has a son 'Otter Boy,' but after being hidden by her Indian husband, who is later killed in battle, to avoid being found by the English, is eventually returned to her original father, Col. Peter Stanton, based upon her memories and what another older white captive among the Indians had told her. The twist is that another girl had been returned to Col. Stanton as his lost daughter, 'Mary Stanton.' For those who have read the 'earlier companion novel,' there is an interesting 'tie-in' to The Light in the Forest at the end.
