Only the thinnest strand of the past holds the mother and daughter together -
The sudden death of her husband had left Sarah Perry and her baby Rebecca alone in their small frontier town. The question from a kind neighbor woman, "What do you plan to do?," seemed impossible to answer. All that remained was their home and the freight-hauling business if sold, it would be at a loss. Sarah was not trained for any job, and she had nowhere to turn.
But Sarah resolved for Rebecca's sake to put her life back together and go on. And to everyone's surprise, Sarah finds a way. But the choices forced upon her by life on the frontier are very hard, especially the question of how to care for Rebecca. The most difficult decision comes when Sarah determines that the best thing for her little daughter's future is to send her away to boarding school.
But the distance that separates them over the years cannot be measured in miles. When the day finally arrives that Rebecca comes home, both mother and daughter find themselves viewing each other from two different worlds. What hope is there of restoring the bond that once was between them?

She made the difficult decision with only her daughter's best interest in mind . . . but did she sacrifice too much?
When her husband dies, Sarah Perry is left with no way to support herself and her daughter, Rebecca. Reluctantly, she takes over operation of her husband's freight-hauling business, managing to save enough money to send Rebecca east to a boarding school-- to an easier life and a future Sarah could not provide.
With the boarding-school fees consuming Sarah's savings, there is no money left for trips home. Over the years, the chasm between mother and daughter becomes much more than geographical distance, and when Rebecca finally returns home, it seems that she and her mother are from different worlds. What hope is there of breaking down the enormous barriers between them?
