A new world and a new way of life await young Ann McKay, as she makes the perilous journey across the ocean to the American frontier. Although she is afraid to leave the home and family that are all she has ever known, she knows that to grow she must move on. Caleb Craighead is a Scottish school-teacher, newly-ordained in the ministry. His firm beliefs and strong determination to make a difference in the world lead him to the shores of America. He feels that he has been called to this rough new land for a higher purpose. Little does he know that he will not be alone, as a special young woman comes to take her rightful place at his side.
Lucinda Matthews' life is perfect. Honey-blond with piercing gray eyes, she is Huntsville, Alabama's most admired debutante, not to mention the twinkle in the eye of her beloved fiancé, Ben Bradley. Then the Civil War invades the South, and Lucinda's life. Ben joins the Confederate forces as enemy troops occupy Lucinda's home. She finds solace in the arms of Yankee Major Seth Russell. But should she love this devilishly attractive man, the antagonist of everything she holds dear? Without his help, her father will probably be carried off to a Northern jail. When Ben returns, Lucinda must finally decide what it is her heart truly wants, and which man she loves: her childhood sweetheart, or her conqueror?
