Sarah Lyons is running from her past, from her grief of losing her husband, and especially from God. She is struggling to survive on her own and care for her young son in the wilderness along the Ohio river. Joining a new community in Washington County, she meets militia leader Jeremiah Stewart.
Jeremiah can relate to her pain and grief; but he hasn't given up on God. His faith, though, will be pressed to the limit when his group is called upon to eradicate a band of "Praying" Indians who are blamed for recent attacks on settlers.
Will Sarah risk talking about her past and admitting what she knows about these Indians? Can Jeremiah help her understand that she can trust God for her welfare and happiness--and for bringing healing to her heart?
