A young widow searches for her husband's killers, seeking justice—and revenge.
Rachel Weber arrives in Pine Valley a new bride—only to discover that her husband has been murdered. While she hardly knew the man that brought her to the frontier, Rachel is compelled to seek retribution from the men who killed her husband, even as the most powerful man in town, Jason Gaspard, warns her to stay away. Jason Gaspard, an educated man proud of his half-Karok Indian heritage, is infuriated by Rachel's ignorance-fueled vendetta against his people. But as their opposition grows, so does a passion too strong to hide.
