Hannah Stone is hard to miss. Her flaming red hair and her tendency to speak her mind make Hannah stand out in any group. But her independent spirit and concern for others have attracted the special attentions of both Clay Scott, recently returned from fighting the War for Independence, and Nate McIntyre, an old hunting friend of Hannah's father.
As the end of the war returns peace to Carolina, Hannah finds herself fighting a new battle in her heart. Not only must she determine her true feelings for Clay and Nate, but she also must resolve the anger and bitterness she harbors toward her cousin Marie.
Peace and love remain elusive until Hannah learns the sign of the dove. By following that sign, will she discover the joy she seeks?
