Freed from her gilded cage
The daughter of a wealthy industrialist, Eleanor Hart is an artist who longs to capture in paint the raw power of the vanishing West. To do so, she agrees to her father’s conditions: He will fund the painting expedition if she agrees to marry a man of his choosing upon her return.
Her guide, rugged Cherokee trapper Troy Price, is impressed by Eleanor's pluck, but on their journey, he transforms her longing for fame into a new yearning for freedom, adventure and a forbidden passion.
Troy knows that he will never find acceptance in her privileged world, but despite all reason, he can't resist loving her, even knowing that her father—and her promise to return—await.
