The 1757 New York frontier is home to the Oneida tribe and to British colonists, yet their feet rarely walk the same paths.

When Reginald comes across an Oneida mother with newborn twins --- one white, one brown --- he makes a choice that will haunt the lives of all involved. As a long-buried truth comes to light, can an unlikely friendship forged at the wood’s edge provide a way forward?
