When Isaac Bering moves north from Florida to join his uncle's medical practice, he cannot understand why Minnesotans would plan an outdoor festival for January 1886---when temperatures are fondly expected to be below freezing! His doubts about his new location, however, are minor compared to his growing doubts about his ability to be a doctor. For Christal Everett, life is pleasant and peaceful. So why it seems when Isaac arrives that she can no longer be satisfied with her simple life? Isaac and Christal must learn to see the unique wonders God has placed inside them. Will they allow that glory to shine like the sin off the crystal walls of St. Paul's ice palace, or will self-doubt keep them from His eternal plan?
