An unlikely attraction occurs between two passengers on a steamboat journey up the Missouri River to Montana...
She is a self-centered young woman from a privileged family who fears the outdoors and avoids anything rustic. He is a preacher living under a sense of duty and obligation to love the unlovable people in the world. She isn't letting anything deter her from solving a family mystery that surfaced after her mother's death. He is on a mission to reach the rejects of society in the remote wilderness regions of Montana. Miss Fannie Rousseau and Reverend Samuel Beck are opposites in every way... except in how they both keep wondering if their paths will ever cross again.

God's Merciful Grace
Thank you...Thank you Mrs. Whitson for weaving these wondrous imaginary friends. Playing with them was marvelous and hearteningly lifting. Fannie was so "alive" to me. Her trail of Christianity echos my own. It takes monumentous events for her to grasp God's will and path for her life. A passage in the epilogue sums it up, "...she was living in that place between what she knew and what she didn't. The place where all she had was faith that God knew what was ahead and she could hang on to Him.". I love that. We all feel in that place on a daily basis but Mrs. Whitson's eloquent way of describing it defines my heart. I love this book and wish she will create more chances for us to "play" with Fannie and her family.
