Growing up on the Kansas prairie, Samantha Martin had two desires: to love God and to marry her childhood sweetheart. But the War between the States took nearly everything: her family, her home, and Nathan, her
love. When he returns six years later, she is shocked to discover he’s no longer the gentle boy she adored. Instead, Nathan Hamilton is a physically and emotionally scarred man on the run, dodging charges of theft...and murder.
Long ago, Nathan dreamed of seeing the world, becoming a doctor, and making Samantha his bride. But instead of adventure, he encountered tragedy and made choices that ravaged his life. Now Nathan seeks peace and freedom in Samantha’s arms--while she strives to lead him into the embrace of the only One who can provide true refuge for his Fugitive Heart.

Samantha Martin and Nathan Hamilton knew from childhood they would marry. But when the Civil War took away their families and homes, their dreams were destroyed as well. Samantha's faith in God and her love for Nathan sustain her through the six years of their separation. But can they withstand the test of Nathan's return? The man of her dreams has been replaced by a hard, bitter outlaw with a price on his head. Nathan accepts Samantha's love, but on his terms. The price is more than her heart is willing to pay. Nathan must face the demons that haunt him, and step from darkness to light before his heart can match the strength of Samantha's love. But will a hangman's noose end their hopes forever? Jane Orcutt has created a memorable tale with a pair of strong passionate characters faced with a seemingly impossible situation.
