INSPIRED BY A STORY IDEA BY ONE OF OUR TREASURED READERS, Al Collins.
Teddy Carson and his Native American friends have made it their responsibility to protect travelers through their land, but one night Teddy is too late to save a family wagon-train. The men have been killed, and the women and children kidnapped – all except one, a little girl named Sandie who had been successfully hidden by her mother, Kendra.
Leaving Sandie in the care of Chief Big Foot, Teddy sets out to fulfil his promise to Sandie to bring her mother home. He succeeds and, to the horror of Kendra’s sister-in-law, falls for Kendra, and she for him.
Kendra understands Milly’s point of view. Kendra’s first husband wasn’t a Christian and treated her terribly; Teddy isn’t a Christian either – he’s a wild mountain man. But Sandie sees something in Teddy and attaches herself to him.
It will take a little child to teach Teddy and Kendra a lesson about forgiveness, redemption, and unconditional love.
