The forests of the Pacific Northwest are lands of mist and rain, of towering trees and salmon-choked rivers. Where forest approaches sea, there live the Tillamook and the Nisqually, two tribes tied to each other by hatred.
Madsaw, war chief of the Tillamook, kidnaps Twana, step-daughter of the Nisqually shaman. Though their people are enemies and to love a slave violates tribal law, Madsaw finds comfort and desire in his captive's arms.
Each lover's heart conceals a secret, Madsaw hides his grief and anger over the murder of his first wife. Twana's burden is far heavier: her spirit touches those of the forest's creatures, from the gentle deer to the powerful, half-mad grizzly bear who stalks the Tillamook village--and everyone who knows of her power hates and fears her.
United by a love stronger than any fear, Twana and Madsaw are determined to find peace and happiness, no matter what perils they must face.
