During the hot, windy summer of 1870 in the burgeoning railroad town of Assurance, Kansas, Marissa Pierce is fed up with her abusive boss. Her longing to expose the saloon's illegal practices and start a new life is all she thinks about, and she is growing weary of convincing townsfolk that she is most certainly not a prostitute. Civil War veteran and preacher Rowe Winford arrives in town intent on leaving the tragic memories of his deceased family behind. Although Rowe has no plans to fall in love anytime soon, the plans of God rarely match those of man. Faced with adversity and rejection from the town and Rowe's family, can Marissa overcome her past, renew her faith, and experience the life of love that God has planned for her?
