The youngest of four daughters, April Sennett wasn't the son her farmer parents wanted and needed. Her father's crippling accident compels her to return home and shoulder the arduous farm work under his vitriolic supervision. Her mother's belated affection helps sustain her, but neighboring farmer Dan Clayton must often be called to April's aid. She doesn't know why he's so willing to help her irreligious family April's father has spent years ridiculing the Holy Claytons for their deep-seated Christianity.
Dan's gentle ways capture April's heart, but it's only after she falls in love with him that she discovers his engagement to a vivacious Christian girl. Reading the Bible only confirms April's unworthiness for Dan. Can God take an impossible situation and give April her heart's desire, or is she destined to a lonely life of working herself to exhaustion to save her father's farm?
