Item description for Beyond the Quiet Hills (The Spirit of Appalachia Series #2) (Book 2) by Gilbert Morris & Aaron McCarver...
The wilderness lands over the misty mountains had drawn them west. But could they tame America's first frontier before it destroyed them?
The Tennessee frontier had brought together Hawk and Elizabeth Spencer in the harshest of times. As they struggle to survive and raise their family at the Watauga settlement, Hawk brings his son, Jacob, to live with them. But Jacob has only known the life of the city and resents his father for leaving him behind in the past. That bitter resentment only intensifies when Jacob discovers the strong bond that's already formed between his stepbrother Andrew and Hawk.
Things are complicated when the stepbrothers both begin to fall in love with Abigail Stevens. While she enjoys the attention of both young men for a time, she knows she must ultimately choose between the two. Will her decision drive the family even further apart?
Can Hawk stop a vengeful plot from turning the frontier into a war with the Cherokee?

A wonderful book! Apr 10, 2002
Hawk Spencer and Elizabeth MacNeal are now married and enjoying married life again. After only a week of being married Hawk and Sequatchie accompany Paul Anderson and Rhonda Harper to Williamsburg so they can be married.
Meanwhile, in Williamsburg Jacob Spencer, Hawk's son, celebrates his sixteenth birthday. Jacob also falls for Annabelle Denton. A few days after his birthday Hawk arrives and asks Jacob to go back to Watauga with him. Jacob can't believe his father even asked after he had abandoned him and left him with his grandparents for sixteen years and now finally wants to be apart of his life. Hawk tries to explain that he had to leave because he was mad at God for taking Jacob's mother, he also explains that now he is finally right with God. Jacob refuses at first until he is betrayed, then Sequatchie proposes a pact and Jacob agrees. Jacob's part of the pact is to go to Watauga for a reasonable amount of time and Sequatchie's part is to take him home after the time period.
It starts out rocky but things turn for the better when Jacob falls in love with Abigail Stevens, the bad part is Andrew MacNeal, his step brother, is also in love with her. The competition goes on for a while and Abigail enjoys the attention of the two young men but she knows she has to choose. Will Abigail's decision separate the family further?
All the while, Hawk becomes sheriff of Watauga and struggles to keep the frontier from having a full-scale war with the Cherokee.
This is a great sequel to the first book. I loved the continuing story of Elizabeth and Hawk. I can't wait to read the rest of the series. If you've read the first book and liked it I strongly suggest this one.
It is a exelent book Nov 20, 1999

Great! Jun 27, 1998
An excellent continuation of the Spirit of Appalachia series. It continues on with Hawk and Elizabeth's life after Hawk goes back to his family in the East to retrieve his son, whom he hopes will forgive him of his mistake of leaving him with his grandparents after his wife dies. It's a super book and I encourage all to read it!
