"She wed Fett Loveland with nothing but a promise and hope, thinking that life was nothing but unexpected glory and hidden riches, tempered only by the radiance of love."
In the 1880's, young Addie leaves her home in the rolling hills of Texas at the side of Fett Loveland despite the pleading of her family. Following him across the vast and open country of unsettled territory, she finds herself far from home when the unthinkable happens.
Now a widow and alone, with no means to get herself home, Addie travels farther north into Nevada to take a job as a housekeeper to the Brady's, with nothing but the intent of earning stage fare back to her own people. Below the Independence Mountains, and far to the north of the mining boom town of Tuscarora she travels, bearing her burden of grief and loneliness. Addie finds in the desert and sage a desolation and hopelessness the human soul cannot bear alone, with nothing but grit and determination to help her rise each morning, and survive the harshness of life on a remote homestead.
As a brutal winter unfolds, Addie finds her comforts in unexpected places, and with the heart of a woman, provides comfort to the four Brady boys who mourn the loss of their own mother. And, in the night, the visions of great herds of horses, in particular, a gray who haunts her dreams and waking hours.
From Lyn Miller comes a spiritually uplifting novel about love, loss and finding the strength to go on. When we are most alone, we are never as alone as we think. Celebrating the strength and dignity of the human spirit as it reaches to accept the confusing will of God, we find a young woman revealing the truest of these attributes.
