The Great War has left deep wounds in the heart of Caleb Hughes. He battles nightmares and memories of his time on the battlefields of France; and even the love of Lizzie, the young wife he met while stationed in England, isn't enough to ease his suffering.
Lizzie is hard-pressed to understand her husband's fears and needs. She is alone in a new country - and in the house of in-laws who are cold and strict. She gives consideration to her father's offer to pay her way out of Alberta.
Will Lizzie's love be enough to keep Caleb from slipping away again? Can they both learn to trust God not only with the present but with their past and future?
