Three children are the sole survivors of the Roanoke massacre. Fallon, the
oldest, made a solemn pledge to protect his younger charges at all
costs. But before long they are torn apart; Fallon is sentenced to
death, but saved at the last moment and sent to England; Noshi is sold as a
slave; and Gilda is claimed by her cousin, Pocahontas. But Fallon has
not forgotten Noshi or Gilda. And so he overcomes all odds to return to
America and fulfill his pledge to his murdered parents. But what awaits
him is far more treacherous than he dreamed, and those he seeks are far
more changed than he could have imagined.
