In 1876, sixteen year old mail-order bride Ellen O'Hara sets off westward from Salina, Kansas to meet her husband-to-be, a cavalry officer stationed at Fort Walla Walla in Washington Territory. But en route, her party is attacked by Indians near Elko, Nevada. Badly wounded, she wanders off into the wilderness and disappears. She will emerge two years later, older than her age and wiser than her years, shaped and burnished in one of the great tragedies in American history. Now she is torn between two worlds, and two men. One clings desperately to the hope she is alive. The other would have considered her a mortal enemy--until he met her.
