When two lonely people meet, they confront discrimination, fall in love, and find a way to be together in the face of prejudices.
Quietly passionate Faith Boone longs to become a teacher, but her father drags her to the backwoods of Humble Creek. Isolated, Faith immerses herself in novels and clings to her fleeting dream. Then the broodingly handsome Morgan Tremain shows up, and with kindness, changes her negative view of men.
Part Cherokee railroad surveyor, Morgan Tremain, rolls quietly into Humble Creek. Upon meeting Faith, he is taken with her striking eyes and calm strength. Though life has hardened him to the idea of love, he is emotionally drawn to the soft-hearted Faith.
Both are aware of their deep attraction, but Morgan knows the world will not accept their being together. Finally, he takes a risk and comes up with a plan that could bring them together or destroy them. (342 Pages)
