A new preacher arrives at the West Texas town of Burnt Rock to lead the eager flock of a burgeoning frontier church. Handsome and sophisticated, Reverend Warner soon wins the love and respect of the entire congregation, but seems particularly drawn to lady horse rancher Lee Morgan.
Town marshall Ben Flood is annoyed by the preacher's attentions to Lee. But more than that, he can't shake the feeling that something is amiss with the minister himself. Flood's suspicions drive a wedge of misunderstanding between him and Lee, who is already feeling frustrated that her relationship with the lawman isn't leading to something more romantic. The marshall worries that he might lose Lee to the new minister-until a web of intrigue is uncovered that could change everything.
