The tension between the settlers and the Sioux warriors begins to mount, and Gen's loyalty is divided between her Sioux family and the new friends she has grown to love at the mission. During the darkest moments of grief and adversity, Gen sees that God's plan has worked in miraculous ways to bring her hope and love for the future. Set in the time of the Dakota Sioux uprising of 1862, Stephanie Whitson has created a powerful and gripping story of hardship, loss, and love.
