Living in an arranged marriage, Beth understands she will never have her husband's love. William has known her since she was a child, but he has also made it quite clear that he believes unspeakable lies about her character - and about their son.
Resigned to making the best of a difficult situation, Beth works to create a home with her husband in the wilderness of Australia. But she can't stop wondering why God seems so distant - and why she can't gain the approval of those she loves.
When a huge brush fire threatens to destroy all she has worked so hard to build, will her dreams turn to ashes? Or will Beth discover a miracle of love in the Great Southland?
"And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity" (1 Corinthians 13:13)
