When an American soldier plucks two-year-old Lyncoya from an Indian battlefield in 1813, General Andrew Jackson adopts him. He sends the youngster to his plantation home, where he can grow up with Andrew Jackson, Jr. A lifelong conflict erupts between the two brothers. Isolated from his heritage, Lyncoya chafes at being bullied and befriends a young slave by teaching him to read, which is against the rules. Andrew, Jr., stalks the boys, then tattles to Jackson. Lyncoya must face his worst fear—being banished from the only home he remembers. Can he recover his place at the Hermitage and in the heart of his adopted family?
