FREDERICA SUMMER, set in 1742 Georgia, is rich with characters drawn from history, the lore of the Golden Isles, and Myers' vivid imagination.
Plummer leaves her Creek mother and village to celebrate her birthday
with her English grandparents in Savannah, Georgia. When disaster strikes
Tabitha is placed in the home of a wealthy family at Frederica as an indentured
servant. She realizes she must forge a new life for herself and embraces
the white world and the Christian faith. She never imagines that someday
she will be forced to choose between two cultures and her love for two
menBroken Arrow of the Cherokee Nation and Ian MacDonald, a Scots
Highlander from Glencoe, Scotland.
When Spanish forces mount an offensive against British held Georgia, the Carolinas in their sights, the Highlanders join General Oglethorpe at Fort Frederica to help stem the tide. The ensuing battle changes Ian's life forever as he is forced to confront death, his prejudice against Indians and his growing attraction for Tabitha with her mixed-blood heritage.
Tabitha finds herself in love with the Highlander but he talks openly of his commitment to Charlotte and his plan to return to Savannah to claim her. Tabitha's dilemma grows when she leaves Frederica to act as an interpreter for General Oglethorpe and returns to the Indian village of her childhood with Broken Arrow as her guide. Broken Arrow offers Tabitha marriage although he knows she loves another.
Should she remain in the white man's world and a love denied or return to her Indian heritage and a promise of love?
