When her parents die
suddenly, and no suitors call, Susannah resigns herself to the only
option available: becoming a mail-order bride. Agreeing to marry her
pastor’s brother, Jesse, Susannah leaves the only home she’s ever known
for the untamed frontier of the Dakota Territory.

Her new
husband is more loving and patient with her than she believes she
deserves. Still, there’s also a wildness to him that mirrors the
wilderness surrounding them. And Susannah finds herself constantly on
edge. But Jesse’s confidence in her — and his faith in God’s perfect
plan — lowly begin to chip away at the wall she hides behind.

she miscarries in the brutal Dakota winter, Susannah’s fledgling faith
in herself and in God begins to crumble. Still, Jesse’s love is
unwavering. Just when it seems like winter will never end, Susannah
finally sees the first tentative evidence of spring. And with it, the
realization that more than the landscape has changed.

She looks to the future with a renewed heart. Yet in her wildest dreams, she couldn’t predict all that awaits her.
