<p>When the Civil War ended, Rose Buchanan listened to her mother's urging to leave their now desolate town for a new start. All she can do is trust God with her decision to join a man she didn't know in holy matrimony starting a new life out west far removed from the ravages of war. Mr. O'Malley wasn't much to look at, and his social skills seemed a bit lacking, but she'd seen glimpses of kindness and that was something she could work with. The trek to Nebraska was hard yet rewarding, but Rose could not foresee the coming turn of events that would shape her life forever. Rose is helpless and knows only God can see her through, but will she be able to endure?

Bound by duty not to fail, Royce is willing to risk all, but will it be enough or is he too late?</p><p>For Rose, help comes unexpectedly out of nowhere, and her reaction to her rescuer and his nearness sends tremors throughout her body.
