Summary
Grace Martindale has known more than her share of hardship. After her parents died, raising her two younger sisters became her responsibility. A hasty marriage to a minister who is heading to the untamed West seemed like an opportunity for a fresh start, but a cholera outbreak along the wagon trail has left Grace a widow in a very precarious position. Having learned natural remedies and midwifery from her mother, Grace seeks an opportunity to use her skills for the benefit of others. So when she and her sisters arrive at the Whitman mission in "Oregon Country," she decides to stay rather than push on. With the help of Alex Armistead, a French-American fur trapper, Grace begins to provide care for her neighbors, including some of the native populace. But not everyone welcomes her skills--or her presence--and soon Grace finds herself and those she loves in more danger than she imagined possible

Summary
On the grueling trail west, Grace Martindale loses her new husband and her last vestige of security. Upon arriving in Oregon Country, she uses her midwifery skills to help the other settlers, and--with the aid of fur trapper Alex Armistead--the Cayuse tribe. But peace between the groups is fragile, and tension soon leads to violence
