Overview

For thirteen years Rebecca Rice suffocated under the social restraints of widowhood, soaking up the leftovers of other peoples lives like a sponge. She can't remember a time in her life when she didn't do exactly what was expected of her -- until now. Armed with a knowledge of nursing and faith healing she learned from a visiting missionary group, she heads for the hill country of southeastern Oklahoma, Indian Territory, to share her new vocation. Reared and groomed in suspicion and superstition, the clannish folk of the hill country resent Rebecca's presence in their midst. Faced with such human conflicts as hate, distrust, jealousy, ignorance, murder, abortion, and child abuse, Rebecca must also struggle with the destructive forces of nature -- tornado, flood, and snowstorms. But her greatest adversary is the circuit riding preacher, Zake Daniels, who fears Rebecca's teachings will threaten his hold on his flock.
Rebecca's struggles take her through the years 1895 to 1935. Is her faith strong enough to sustain her through the most trying battles, and help her stand strong in the midst of her adversities?
