Romance and revenge, hot tempers, and cold feet frame a gripping story set in rural Elkton, Idaho, in the 1860s. Young Jordan Shaw angers easily and lives wildly, experiencing prison and kidnapping before his family attempts to tame him with marriage. To avoid their choice, he seeks a mail order bride, pretty Diana Morrow, who suffers the abuse of a violent father before escaping her tumultuous family home. When Diana arrives in Elkton and finds Jordan suddenly missing, will a handsome distraction change her destiny? How three young people's paths entwine -- and how God meets each deep need with sufficient grace -- make this riveting story both vastly entertaining and faith-inspiring.
