But frontier life holds promise and peril far greater than any Anna could ever imagine. The growing conflict between native tribes and white settlers threatens to erupt in bloodshed. And in this untamed land is a sister Anna doesn't even know exists, a twin named Willow, hidden at birth and raised among the Indians. As settlers and Indians clash, fate will bring Anna together with her unknown sister...and lead her to a passion beyond her wildest fantasies. From Publishers Weekly In this post-Revolutionary War story, the identical twin daughters of a fiery Scotsman and a beautiful Delaware woman are separated at birth. Anna grows up in Philadelphia, while Willow is raised in a Shawnee village. Once Anna finishes her studies, she joins her father in Kentucky, where he settled after the war. Meanwhile, Willow is anxious to leave her village because of an ardent suitor who won't take no for an answer. She's on her way to a sister village in Kentucky when she comes upon the Shawnee warrior White Eagle and it's love at first sight. They marry quickly, but their happiness is cut short by the ongoing war between the Indians and the whites. During an Indian raid, Anna is mistaken for Willow and ends up with the Shawnee; Willow, in turn, is mistaken for Anna and is left behind with the whites. And so begins the chain of events that draws the two sisters together at last. Unfortunately, despite the clever premise, Cornelius's newest (after Love's Gentle Journey) contains little conflict or believable romance. Copyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc.

They have estranged her from her friends and family, who are unable to cope with things out of the ordinary and who refuse to believe her explanations that she does not know what is happening to her.

But this man has secrets of his own, secrets that she is unwilling to believe. Can love conquer disbelief? A mixture of fate and fantasy pushes the boundaries of Lucy’s faith ... until she questions her own sanity.

In The Mouth Of The Wolf from the Author: Nicole Maggi. The Twin Willows Waterfall is now under the control of the Benandanti, but for Alessia, the victory comes at a steep price. And the arrival of Nerina, one of the seven Concilio elders from the Friuli Clan, only complicates her life. Now she’s hiding a 450-year-old immortal on her farm, juggling school and her increasingly frustrated friends, and trying to keep the Malandanti from regaining the Waterfall. But it’s the passion that still lingers between her and Jonah that really keeps Alessia awake at night. After a fatal visit from the Malandanti’s mage, Alessia brings in Jonah’s twin sister, Bree, to serve as a Benandanti spy. Bree has her own reasons for wanting to bring down the Malandanti, and soon she and Alessia find themselves in a tenuous alliance. But not even the powerful magic that Bree possesses nor the strong leadership that Nerina provides can stop the vicious Malandanti. As the two Clans barrel towards their inevitable collision, Alessia and Jonah are swept into the devastation and forced to make the ultimate choice.
