Overview

A stirring debut novel 'of love, struggle, and savagery on America's colonial frontier' (Bernard Cornwell).

They call her Dark Maggie for her thick black hair, but the name also has a more sinister connotation. As the lone survivor of an attack on her village, she was thought to be cursed-and unfit for marriage. Maggie is also gifted with quick wits and skilled in medicine, trained as a midwife. Venturing to the colonies as an indentured servant, she hopes to escape the superstitions of the old country-and find a home of her own. But what she discovers is a New World fraught with new dangers.
