He escapes from his captors and hides in the woods to die, only to be rescued by Mary Thomsen, an American farmwoman. As Daniel’s festering wound heals, his gratitude to the woman who saved him transforms into love. But as an enemy soldier, his presence is endangering Mary, as well as her widowed mother and little sister. As he desperately tries to hide his identity, not only is he faced with exposure by the local Patriots, but must deal with his worst nemesis: an American soldier who also loves Mary and figures out who Daniel really is.
