Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0800756959, Paperback)Over half a million readers of Brenda Wilbee's Sweetbriar series were delighted when Revell brought back the beloved Louisa Boren Denny with three new historical fiction books to complete the series. Tension mounted in Sweetbriar Summer as Louisa and David embraced their new prosperity but faced escalating - and justifiable - Indian unrest. In Sweetbriar Autumn, war erupted twenty miles away, calling David to leave his new family to help bury White River's dead. Now in Sweetbriar Hope the war moves ever closer to Seattle.
Seattle's men must leave their families to block the terrifying Indian advance with an outpost upriver. Yet the Indians find another way to surround the village and attack. Louisa and her small daughter race through the crossfire of Indian guns and the warship's cannon. Minutes later, sequestered in Seattle's crude blockhouse with thirteen other families, Louisa's only hope is her faith and trust in God. Meanwhile David, now back and hunkering alongside the marines outside the blockhouse, fights to protect his family from what he believes is justified fury of the natives.
Louisa's patience, kindness, and leadership within the confines of the blockhouse bring hope to the other women. She reassures them that David's Indian friends will stand by. But the question remains, Who else will die before the battle is over? Will David?
