Ginny Red Fawn McLain, a Shawnee medicine woman, is thrust back into the world of her birth family twelve years after her abduction. While she eschews the Christianity preached by her birth uncle who found her, Ginny's heart refuses to shun his friend and fellow Christian minister, Jeremiah Dunbar.
Jeremiah Dunbar is immediately smitten with his friend's long lost niece. But unless Ginny Red Fawn joins Christ's fold--something she adamantly resists--any future with the woman he loves is impossible.
Amid an atmosphere of contempt and distrust, dreams and cultures clash. Ginny and Jeremiah are left to wonder whether their burgeoning love has any place in God's plan.
