In 1860 on the Lynch Wyoming ranch, Jenny and Chase are attracted to one another almost from the first moment they meet. They eventually exchange vows of love that both believe is forever as each one of the couple presumes he or she is the luckiest person on the earth. They marry and soon Jenny becomes pregnant. However, happiness ends when an enemy of Chase kills Jenny's brother on his wedding day. Feeling guilty and angry, Chase vows to revenge the death of his best friend.

Chase deserts Jenny and begins tracking the culprit Logan. As his heart fills with anger, his spouse wants her beloved back not this brooding stranger who shows up periodically. She misses her sibling too, but her energy is to help the man she cares about above her own life find his way back into the light of love.

This story is at its best with flashbacks to a happier times as the present (and much of the book) is spent in separation. The key couple is a delightful duo, but the audience barely sees them together except in memories. This makes for strong relational realism, but hurts the romantic element. Cindy Holby displays her talent with an insightful look at tragedy on the eve of the Civil War.
