Jennifer Collins, with a broken arm and cracked ribs, is trapped in her home by the blizzard of the century. Without power or telephone service, and with gale-force winds threatening to tear the roof off her trembling house, she waits for help.
Help comes in the form of Rick Jenkins, a volunteer fireman, who comes to take her to a shelter. But when a toppling tree crushes his truck, Rick and Jennifer must concentrate on simply staying alive until other help can arrive.
As Jennifer learns more about her unexpected guest, she recognizes the pain that has frozen his soul. She believes God has brought them together for a reason, but will Rick be able to acknowledge that? Can he face his wounds and forgive those who have hurt him?
