Miriam lives with her sister and brother-in-law and their children on the frontier. When they are captured by Indians, they are taken to Quebec. While her brother-in-law is imprisoned and negotiating for their release, Miriam and her sister must find a place to live, and a way to support themselves. Meanwhile, they wonder what has happened to her nieces and nephew? Near the end, Miriam has to choose between staying in Quebec and becoming the wife of a French soldier and trapper, or returning home to her friend, a young clergyman.
