When Indians kill her husband on the trail to Kentucky, Livi Talbot and her two young children bury him then continue their trek on the Wilderness Road to what David promised would be their new home.
While Livi settles into the wilderness cabin David built with his own hands, Reid Campbell, David's best friend and Livi's nemesis, arrives. A wanderer who spends more time with Indians than whites, Reid produces a document stating all holdings revert to him, in the case of David's death.
Reid insists Livi and the children return to Virginia, but Livi refuses. She's too far along in her pregnancy with David's last child, to travel. Summer ensues, filled with hard work, danger from Indian raids and a constant battle of wills between Livi and Reid.
As winter deepens, Reid helps Livi deliver David's son. Reid knows he should gift the cabin and land to Livi and walk away, but his heart has finally found a family and a place called home.
