Isabelle Chastain is the “beautiful” sister, one who is rarely taken seriously because of her looks. She has struggled all her life to overcome people’s first impressions, yet it continues as her family immigrates to the Oregon territory.
Mason Bennett left North Carolina and his lucrative college teaching role to head west, to capitalize on the newly found gold in the California territory. Dazzled by the potential find, he believes his friend’s stories of a claim that will bring them millions. He comes to regret the decision when he is robbed, beaten, stripped and left for dead.
Isabelle doesn’t expect to find a naked man bleeding to death in the dirt, but she cannot leave him to die. She heals him while heading east, desperate to find the remnants of her family. When their wagon is hijacked by a family of vagabonds, their lives take a hard right turn.
Together, Isabelle and Mason band together to save themselves, save Charlie, and find the future filled with the happiness they’ve been chasing.
