Now sixteen, Jenny is reconciled to a dreary existence when she meets Daniel Monroe. The young pastor's kind blue eyes and genuine concern warm her heart. For the first time since her parents died, Jenny hears about a God who loves her and can give her strength to forgive those who destroyed her family. David determines to marry Jenny, but Natty has other plans. As David frantically works against time, he fears the worst: He may be too late to free Jenny.
