Born and raised on a sprawling ranch in Texas, Margaret O'Brien prides herself on her competence as a rancher. She's convinced that she can do as good a job on the ranch as her brother who died in the war. But her father believes that she's made for more than just dawn-to-dusk work. He wants her to have the love of a good man, to have children, to build a life. But she gave up hope for such dreams years ago. The ranch is her life now.
A love like Lucy and Jesse's only comes along once in a blue moon.... Lucy Marsh has lost everything but her determination to provide for her brother and sister. When she realizes her father was likely killed by an intruder who is now after her brother, she decides to accept a proxy marriage in order to get her siblings out of harm's way. But trouble follows her to Wichita, Texas, and nothing there is as she expected. Not the man she came to marry nor the family ties she'd hoped to find. Can it be true that real security is in letting go of her own strength and trusting in the One who is far stronger than she?
