Format: Paperback
Quinn yearns for the freedom of the valley; not only does she yearn, she dreams. With the familial MacFadden Sight in tow, she dreams her way to her ambitions. While she's on a mission to find and free her cousin, Owen, from the hands of the Iroquois, she gains her own settlement, The MacFadden settlement. Her guide, half-Cherokee half-Irishman, Jackson Wolf changes her life course as she finds herself falling madly in love. With the impending war, Jack is to make a choice: either to be entrusted by the King as a translator, or to commit treason.

"'I just wonder if you've considered that by trusting this man, you are taking on two lives: one white, one savage. Can you live in that in-between world, Quincy?'" (loc. 1425)

Such a well written piece. As a debut novel, I'm taken aback at how seasoned and classic this novel feels. Told in first-person, I felt as though I was reading a diary and thus entering the inner most thoughts of Quinn. Quinn, as the strong independent woman she is, was a breath of fresh air from the usual damsel in distress. The depth this book goes into, steeped in history and culture, is wonderfully done. I admit I was a bit weary to continue, in the beginning, but I'm glad I did because the story line of war, freedom and romance caught me up in my imagination. As the descriptive scenery and vivd characterization is put before us, the author paints a glorious picture of a in-depth historical romance.

First Line: "My story begins before the fall, in that Indian summer time when the hills are tipped with oncoming old, and the light hangs just above the trees, dotting the Blue Ridge with gilded freckles." (loc. 50)

Last Line: "For the land called to me even now, in an ancient tongue, willing me home." (loc.

On the surface, Keowee Valley, the debut novel of Katherine Scott Crawford, has all the right ingredients of a corset-ripping romance. There's a voluptuous blonde heroine with a heart of gold, a muscular tomahawk-wielding hero that no woman can tame, and simmering sexual tension all in an exotic setting on the verge of cultural transformation. If judged on the basic tenets of a romance, Keowee Valley is a satisfying read yet this novel is much richer, much deeper than its cover suggests.

Quincy McFadden is a 25 year-old Scottish immigrant residing in Charlestown, South Carolina, 1768. She is compelled to rescue her cousin, Owen from the Shawnee Indians that roam the southern Appalachian Mountains. Yet she also desires freedom and hopes to trade goods with the Cherokee for her own parcel of land in the Blue Ridge Mountains that mark the rocky confluence of North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. Quincy has a dream of her own homestead, far from government intrusion and the culture of a woman's expectations; she's a pilgrim running from the politics of oppression created by earlier pilgrims. With a family protector along as guide, they make their way from city lights to the rugged country side where she spies her first Indian and finds herself fascinated.
"Both men were shirtless but the younger...looked somehow wilder in his deerskin leggings, a dangerously long knife tied with a leather strap to his waist. His black hair was shorn into a single, spiky line that became a long tail at his nape...I stood transfixed...I'd never seen men who looked as they did. Their skin looked the color of burnt cedar that gleamed in the sunlight. They were tall and leanly muscled, and for the most part, strikingly handsome.

What Stephanie Thinks: Katherine Scott Crawford's debut novel is a lush, vibrant glimpse of the budding Revolutionary War-era America, as well as an impassioned, glittering combination of adventure, romance, and suspense. The story begins with our lovely heroine, Quincy MacFadden, confessing to having been plagued with strange visions, of which she is positive are omens. She's a rebel at heart, raised to be free and to be only herself, so she knows she has to peruse her intuition, especially because she's got a niggling hunch that her mission will lead her to her missing cousin, Owen.

That's only the beginning of the long, momentous, tumultuous journey that is Keowee Valley. Heart-pounding encounters with the Cherokee Native Americans, a star-crossed romance, more visions, and the threat of Redcoats loom in her time to come. While I did find the story to drag on at times (I felt there was just too much. I didn't have trouble getting through it, but there seemed to be an infinite number of pages), it certainly doesn't lack action.

Crawford's style is absolutely exquisite; her landscape descriptions brim with glittering detail and her emotions are captured beautifully on the pages. It's told in first-person too, which is rare for a historical novel, but all-the-more personal and vivid. Normally with historical fiction, I get bored with with all the material details, but that wasn't the case with this one. I think it had just the right amount of historical content.
