Set in harshly beautiful 1830's Nova Scotia, Seasoning the Blade is the coming of age story of a young Scottish girl named Ella who is caught between tradition and the modern yearnings of her heart. Full of adventure, danger, and Ella's forbidden desire for the Micmac warrior Stands Like a Tree, this is a novel both thrilling and lovely.
