Barbary Hannah West leaves behind the guilt and disappointment of her life in eastern Tennessee to join her neighbors, the Graham family, in their 1856 move to the Ozark foothills of southwest Missouri. Pastor John Graham is confident that the Lord is leading them to a fertile field of service in their new home, but Barbary finds only more heartache and loss. Barbary slowly regains her faith in a loving and forgiving Lord as she finds her calling as a healer in the Cates Creek community. The trials of living as a single mother in the turmoil of the Civil War test both her faith and her ability to survive, but she discovers that love can come again.
