After the Little Big Horn, newly widowed LisBeth King Baird returns to Lincoln, Nebraska, only to discover that her mother is also gone. LisBeth’s rebellious heart finds little comfort in the Christian faith that sustained her mother.
Soaring Eagle resists the rising tide of change that threatens to wash away everything he loves. But at the Santee Normal Training School, he’s challenged by the faith he remembers learning from the white woman who raised him—one of two women whose images are contained in the locket Soaring Eagle took off the body of a soldier at the Little Big Horn.
When they finally stand face to face, both LisBeth and Soaring Eagle must grapple with the seemingly impossible—forgiveness.
