Her son and the man she's learning to love just narrowly escaped death themselves at the confrontation at Goliad. Now Mexico's armies are pushing north, burning property and killing settlers, while Comanche raiders terrorize ranchers along the Brazos where Jerusalem Ann Hardin has decided to plant her clan. Will she join the panicked settlers fleeing to safety, or will she stand and fight for this land she loves? Will her new faith remain strong when the Comanche raids get personal?
