From bestselling author Judith Pella comes the remarkable tale of two vastly different lives colliding in the Texas wilderness and their journey to the place of deliverance. Elise Toussaint Hearne thought her devastating secret would be safe--after all, her dark hair and tanned complexion merely hints at French ancestry, and her infant daughter, Hannah, is as fair as her father. But that did little to save her after the revelation that Elise's deceased mother was one-quarter African and a runaway slave. All of her descendants are now the property of Maurice Thomson, a cruel and depraved man eager to recover his lost goods. Disowned and shamed by the Hearne family, Elise and her child find themlelves slaves, traveling to the wild frontier of Texas. Benjamin Sinclair is a fiery evangelist newly arrived from Boson, determined to convert the lawless Texans with a strong dose of retribution. When Benjamin and Elise inadvertently meet, their lives intertwine as tragedy befalls them--shattering their fragile existence and forcing them to discover the faith that sustains.
