Hawk's adventures in the West Indies end when his fortune is exchanged for a friend's life. Determined to gain it back in New York, the ambitious Englishman uses Catharyna's relationship with the Mohicans to secure the largest land tract in the province for himself. But, land and English law hold no power over the tight knit Dutch society that controls the province's money. Neither virtue nor meekness are on Hawk's mind when he chooses Catharyna, the most broadminded and influential Dutchwoman in the province, to be his wife and doorway to the wealth.
Hawk begins a cat and mouse game that leads them to London where it shifts into a relationship built on the depth of their passion for the land and spirit of adventure. But, will separation, greed, and deceit blur Catharyna's trust in Hawk when the Duke of York exposes the true William Hawkins? The stakes rise when Catharyna must gamble everything she desires for the courage to be the first person to stay Hawk's hand.

Sheedy's style is captivating with flavors of romance, adventure, and funny at times. Very engaging! A good book should leave us missing the characters as we would miss a dear friend or relative who moves away, 'Land in the Sky' left me craving for sequels of past and future generations.
