When Sarah Wendt lost both parents on the Oregon Trail and was left with three young siblings to raise, she was angry with God. Only two days from Oregon City, her father had died before getting to the city he'd been talking about for well over a year.
When Elmer King realized that Sarah had lost her father, he did what he'd been trying to find the courage to do since before they'd left Independence; he asked her to marry him. Together, they would raise her siblings and file their claims on land near Clover Creek.
Sarah had no way of knowing the type of man Elmer really was until after they married, when she discovered he was everything he seemed to be. Sarah's anger toward God made her see the whole world differently, and she couldn't seem to get past it.
Will Sarah's feelings toward God and her father change? If they don't, can she and Elmer make it work?
