Who is John Thornton?
When a handsome drifter rescues Carrie Butler from her runaway buggy, she believes he is the fulfillment of all her dreams. But is John Thornton really the chivalrous "mysterious stranger" of Carrie's dreams? Or does his sudden appearance threaten everything she holds dear?
The foreman of the Circle C Ranch thinks John is hiding something---and wonders about his interest in the old Nolan place. When Carrie asks questions about the burned-out homestead, people change the subject. And what of the hanging tree? Where did it get its name? What secrets lie buried there?
Without a doubt, Carrie's life is about to change, but will it be for good or evil? Will her love for John Thornton bring salvation to her heart or the destruction of her family?
