A terrified young woman loses everything that matters. Will her faith survive? Will she?
When a buffalo stampede overruns her covered wagon, Jesse King finds herself alone on the prairie—until she’s rescued by the Lakota Sioux. Rides the Wind expects Jesse to help raise his motherless child. Initially terrified and eventually the brunt of endless jokes whispered by the other women, Jesse finally earns a place among the Lakota and gives her heart to the man she thinks of as her “best beloved.” But then tragedy strikes again, taking Jesse to the end of herself and forcing her to face the greatest challenge yet to her once strong Christian faith.
