Frederica Summer is a rich, rewarding novel that evokes a special time and place in the history of our nation. Set on St. Simons Island, Georgia in 1742, it is an inspirational account of Tabitha (White Blossom) Plummer, who is forced to choose between two cultures and her love for two men. Tabitha's struggle interweaves with Scottish Highlander, Ian MacDonald, and Broken Arrow, a Cherokee. Ian, shanghaied into the service of the British and caught up in the intrigue of war, is attracted to Tabitha yet promised to another. Broken Arrow loves the mixed-blood girl and offers Tabitha marriage that will unite her with her mother's people. Frederica Summer reveals the author's insight into the American Indian's relationship with the land, and man's propensity for war. She imparts her love of history and presents her readers with real people in real places within the bounds of a fictional novel. Once again Dody Myers blends historical fact with vivid storytelling.
