Phoebe Carey plans to marry Richard Trevlyn and live happily ever after in the hamlet of Haventown on the banks of the Hudson River. But the American Revolution intervenes. He leaves to join the Butler's Rangers at Niagara to fight against the rebels.
Phoebe and her Quaker parents are persecuted because of their refusal to join either side. They decide to flee to the safety of the British flag at Niagara. Phoebe is ecstatic, sure she will find Richard there although nothing has been heard of him. She will also escape the lecherous Dilly Crossman although he vows to follow her.
Enduring the hardships of a winter trip through the forest, Phoebe and her family persevere. Will they reach Niagara? Will she find Richard and fulfil her dream? Will Dilly catch up with her?
