A story of loyalty, heroism, and the depths of love.
A Dividing Conflict
In 1863, the War Between the States is dividing more than just a nation. To escape the conflict, Jessica Hale and her family flee their Kentucky homestead and head for the Nevada Territory. Her brother, Ambrose, determined to defend his homeland, rejoins the Kentucky militia and is disowned by his father. But the worst is yet to come.
The Heroic Kidnapper
When Unionists presume the family to be Confederate sympathizers, they set a devastating fire to their home. All alone and then “kidnapped” by cattleman Jake Bennett, Jessica is taken to a ranch deep in the Sierra Nevada wilderness. Can she overcome her resentment toward Jake for failing to save her family?
The Depths of Love
Jessica makes numerous attempts to escape her kidnapper and return to Carson City, but she is apprehended each time and brought back to the remote ranch. Why are Jake Bennett and his ranch hands so concerned about keeping her there? She ponders these things and wonders whether Ambrose is still alive. Soon, she’ll see what God can bring out of the lingering smoke and smoldering ashes from her ruined home and murdered family.
