The year is 1860 and seventeen-year-old Dulsey Carpenter has helped her disabled father care for their central Tennessee farm since she was seven. A neighboring land owner, Edward Richards, is drawn to Dulsey and expresses his wish to marry her. Dulsey refuses and soon discovers that Edward is a man who will stop at nothing to gain what he desires. Harvey Kendall is a young man who is staying with relatives in the nearby hills while waiting for spring before continuing his travels westward. His boyish charms and good looks tweak the imaginations of the young girls in the valley and they find themselves fighting to be the one riding by his side when he leaves. Dulsey is no exception, but for different reasons, and as the time draws near for Harvey to leave, Dulsey brashly asks him to take her with him. She assures him it is only to escort her to Fort Smith, where she believes her uncle resides. Her friend, Carla, overhears the conversation and quickly includes herself in the plans.On the trail, their lives become entangled with runaway slaves, bounty hunters and ultimately, murder. As the law closes around them, Dulsey discovers that faith and trust are needed to experience the true love she longs for.show more
