Christy Williams finally has her life on track. She's putting her past behind her and working hard to build her career as a buyer for a large used bookstore. So far she's been able to keep her drinking problem at bay, but everything changes when she lands a DUI on her thirty-third birthday.
When she's accused of a crime she didn't commit at work, she has nowhere to turn. She yearns for her estranged family, especially her younger sister May whom she hasn't seen for fifteen years. Now the owner of a failing cattle ranch in Elk Valley, Colorado, May couldn't possibly want a relationship with the big sister who didn't even say good-bye all those years ago, could she?
Soon Christy's fleeing from her shattered dreams, her abusive ex-boyfriend, and God. Could the Triple Cross Ranch be the safe haven she's searching for, or will May's new-found faith give her even more reason to reject Christy?
