Plagued by loneliness on the Big Muddy Ranch, a sheepherder?s wife awaits the outcome of her husband?s trial for murder. He is sentenced to life in prison?and she to life without him. But a startling event could redeem their pasts and transform their future.
Against a backdrop of attempted murder, federal indictments, and the first case of bio-terrorism in the U.S., one woman seeks to rescue her granddaughter from within the elaborate compound of a cult that has claimed the land.
On the much-reviled, abandoned cult site, one woman?s skepticism turns to hope when she finds that what was meant to destroy can be used to rebuild?and in the process realizes a long-held dream.
For three women seekers united across time, a remote and rugged stretch of land in the Pacific Northwest proves to be a place where miracles really happen?and the gifts of faith, hope, and charity are as tangible as rocks, rivers, and earth.
