In early 19th-century Texas, rancher Weston Phillips attempts to drive longtime Mexican residents from their homes because he has big plans for their land. Phillips's intentions are thwarted when rebels led by Armando Garcia kidnap his daughter, Marianne, whose sympathies lean toward the mestizos. She is also attracted to their handsome leader, but she and Armando know that they are from different worlds and can never be together. When Marianne is returned to her father, he is more concerned with ensuring that the financially beneficial marriage he has arranged for his daughter takes place. This traditional historical romance with a Christian worldview features stock characters and a predictable plot, but it delivers a pleasant read for those who enjoy this genre.
