From the Jacket
"Sierra Madrid." Woman of today. Bold. Determined. Her life is about to be turned upside down.

Two women, centuries apart, are joined through a tattered journal as they contend with God, husbands-even themselves-until they fall into the arms of the One who loves them unconditionally.
