Following the westward route of the Orphan Trains, itinerant photographer Shea Waterston is searching for the infant son she was forced to give up ten years ago. To pay her way, Shea photographs everything from church choirs to outlaws, and is setting up her camera at a hanging when she lands in Judge Gallimore's jail.

Colorado Territorial Judge Cameron Gallimore, a strong but just man, damned himself years before with one fateful decision. But when Shea is hurt saving his life, Cameron takes her to his ranch--against his own better judgement--to recuperate. While there, Shea begins to suspect the Judge's ten-year-old son is her own lost child.

But the boy's identity isn't the only secret Cam has, and just as Shea begins to heal the empty places in his heart, Cam's past catches up with him. Now Cameron must stand against his enemies to protect his boy and win Shea's love forever.

When Indians kill her husband on the trail to Kentucky, Livi Talbot and her two young children bury him then continue their trek on the Wilderness Road to what David promised would be their new home.

While Livi settles into the wilderness cabin David built with his own hands, Reid Campbell, David's best friend and Livi's nemesis, arrives. A wanderer who spends more time with Indians than whites, Reid produces a document stating all holdings revert to him, in the case of David's death.

Reid insists Livi and the children return to Virginia, but Livi refuses. She's too far along in her pregnancy with David's last child, to travel. Summer ensues, filled with hard work, danger from Indian raids and a constant battle of wills between Livi and Reid.

As winter deepens, Reid helps Livi deliver David's son. Reid knows he should gift the cabin and land to Livi and walk away, but his heart has finally found a family and a place called home.
