Picking up where the first book in the Fort Bridger series leaves off, Consider the Lilies finds Hannah's wagon train twenty days from Fort Bridger as she deals with her children's and her own grief over her husband's death. In Fort Bridger, the Solomons make many friends. Yet there is one man, embittered by the Civil War, who hates Hannah because her husband fought on the Union side of the war, and because she is a strong woman who still plans to run the general store. In a fit of temper, this man, Alex Patterson, sets a fire that destroys Hannah's store, and seemingly her future. But just when Hannah is about to give up, she is reminded to cling to God's promises that he will provide. Soon she sees God's hand upon her life. As a result, Hannah is able to recover...and even lead Alex Patterson to Christ through her example of forgiveness.

As the wagon train pulls away from her husband's fresh grave, Hannah hears again her father's bitter words. Now without a husband to help raise her children, Hannah Cooper must decide whether to turn back to the safety of her parents' home in Missouri or take her children to a new life on the western frontier. With faith in God's purpose for sending them this far, she presses on for Fort Bridger, where she plans to open the general store she and her husband dreamed of. Life begins anew for Hannah in Fort Bridger, and the future looks bright until a sudden act of malice destroys the Cooper family's main hope of survival. With this stunning blow, Hannah's faith is shaken and she wonders, "After coming so far, will I have to turn back now?"
