Thinking he’s been treated unjustly by his father, James Owen leaves the family homestead to make a new life for himself.

The turbulent world of post-Civil War Colorado Territory is a dangerous place for an ex-Confederate soldier. The prejudice he encounters increases his bitter loneliness. Then he’s shot, and winds up in the debt of a man whose family has already caused him grief. After James recovers enough to work off his debt and leave town, he comes upon another wayfarer, young Amparo Garcés, who has journeyed from Santa Fe to Colorado to marry a stranger. Through a twist of fate, their futures are changed forever when their lives are merged in a marriage of convenience. James and Amparo undertake a hazardous horseback trek over Raton Pass to Santa Fe, battling their personal demons, a challenging language barrier, and winter’s raging storms.
