Six years have passed since the Hutterites arrived in South Dakota from the Russian steppes. In that time Hannah’s relationship with Paul appears to have deepened—until he abandons the colony, disappearing somewhere up the Missouri River. Has Paul lost his faith and given up on the Hutterite way?
The deathbed intuition of Paul’s aunt pushes Hannah on a quest to find Paul and save him from an unknown danger. Hannah’s journey takes her from Split Rock Colony to the farthest reaches of America. Will she find Paul in time? How will she survive the dangers of 1880 America with no one but a naïve, younger brother for protection? Will she be able to trust God and find the love she is looking for?
