From the back cover: "This latest in the series of novels about Bruce MacAlister and his family opens up with a happy event-the wedding of Bruce's daughter, Mary Jean at Kelvingrove, her father's church in Glasgow. But as family and friends rejoice, they cannot know that for some of them this will be a final, precious time together on earth. Within just a few days, immense sorrow overshadows their lives once again.
Undeterred by the physical harm a tragic train wreck caused him, Bruce's adopted brother, Jeremy Ward, seeks to provide a haven for the helpless. But suddenly a noble family challenges the MacAlisters' right to Mains farm.
Will this faithful Scottish family fight for the land, even if it means taking on the whole community?"
