Antonio Sanchez is looking for his family.
His wife and daughter were headed to Montana Territory from Santa Fe, Mexico to join him in Paradise Valley. But he hasn't heard from them in a long time, and every day that passes his anxiety for their safety grows. As soon as the snow melts, he decides to travel back to Texas, their last known location, to see if he can discover their whereabouts. But bands of outlaws, disgruntled townsfolk hankering for blood, and drunken cowpokes turn his journey into an epic and dangerous adventure.
Lotte Veldon and her husband traveled all the way from Holland to Texas to start a new life as pioneers. But a tragedy leaves her stranded, alone and on the run.
When their paths collide on a dusty Texas road, neither of them realizes just how much their lives are about to change. When Lotte begs him to let her help find his family, he reluctantly agrees, but only until he finds her a more permanent place to stay.
Time on the road will fan the flames of affection and put both their lives at risk. Will Antonio find his family? And what will become of Lotte if he does?
