Anna is desperate to escape the harsh life that she is destined to live if she stays in Boston. She yearns for freedom and a better life in the western frontier.

Her dreams of a fresh start in the west are cut short when she must handle unfounded accusations. In this story of challenges, Anna must learn how to not let small issues become big ones for no reason.

Charles Judge is looking for a helpmate to share his life and help him with the responsibilities of managing his expansive ranch. He is generous to others and steadfastly loyal to family, but must learn that sometimes things don't always seem as they appear. Sometimes tough decisions must be made, even if it means going back on promises to family members.
