This moving story, set in and around colonial Deerfield, MA., won the National Book Award for history as well as the Francis Parkman and Ray Allen Billington history prizes. In 1704, a French and Indian war party attacked the settlement of Deerfield, killing many inhabitants and capturing a minister, John Williams, and his five children. Most of the Willams family was eventually released, but Eunice Willams chose to remain with her captors, even converting to Catholicism and marrying a Mohawk tribesman. Despite the Williams's attempts to convince her to return to her family, she refused. This outstanding book examines the cultural and religious barriers that separated most colonial peoples, and the tumult caused by those who crossed them. ~ Reviewed by Louise Jones
