Book 2, The Runaways

Jemma is betrothed to a rich and handsome man. The kind of man every father likes. She has everything a girl could ever want—except the right to choose her own true love. So one night she runs away and disappears into the sultry darkness of New Orleans—and meets the kind of man every father fears.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 02, 1997 – Life along the Mississippi in 1817 is the colorful setting for this cozy unpretentious tale. Fresh out of convent school, wealthy, imaginative Jemma O'Hurley flees a forced marriage, only to find her adventurous heart has landed her in a maze of dark, dangerous streets in New Orleans. One of her (many) prayers are answered by the big, burly buckskin-clad Kentuckian Hunter Boone (a distant cousin of Daniel). The narrative is straightforward--a series of rescues, some involving Jemma, some not--sustained by Landis's well-deserved reputation for eloquence. ( "A dream can be a very cold and lonely thing, not unlike the snow that reflected blue-white beneath the sun.") Here, Landis offers jeopardy, modest bits of humor and lots of sweetness.
