Overcoming lifelong rejection is not what keeps Singing Bird from loving, but it keeps her from accepting love. Hiding from those who seek to do her harm, Singing Bird and Little Sun must survive on the land and their own sheer grit. The two seek shelter in the only place Singing Bird has ever felt welcomed, appreciated, and protected. Only, in doing so, she places herself near the one man she has tried to forget. Pete desires a wife and family with all of his heart, but waiting is hard. Then the woman of his dreams reenters his life, and his hopes soar. Love and happiness, however, seem to stay out of his reach. All the while, Pete must keep up with some challenging interruptions. Charlie wants adventure. But life on the Missouri prairie in 1860 is not the stuff dreams are made of. Charlie wants to go his own way and is struggling to submit to God’s plan. Then suddenly, Pete’s biggest interruption becomes Charlie’s greatest adventure. While you read the twists and turns of this remarkable journey of faith, you’ll realize how alike we all are in our resistance to accepting needed change in our lives, even when it leads to a better life.
