Orphaned, then mistreated by her guardian, Jenny Davis has learned some hard lessons in life. For one thing, she believes God doesn’t love her. How could He, when He’s allowed such terrible hardships to befall her? Jenny decides any happiness she may find will have to come about through her own efforts and moves to Tucson in hopes of beginning a new life.

He intends to finish the job he was hired to do, then return home — until he takes one look at Jenny. But digging ore out of hard rock may be easier than breaking down the walls of distrust Jenny has erected around herself.
