Carli and her new husband, Gus Dennis, enjoy their small apartment and close church family in rural Virginia. The little they have belongs to them and brings them comfort. Unanswered questions in Gus's past are not important-until the day a stranger comes to their door.
Gus had preferred not to tell Carli that he was the only heir to Dennis Mining and Manufacturing--and unimaginable wealth. Now the company needs Gus as CEO, and Carli's ideal marriage suddenly faces the combined power of Boston's high society and Gus's manipulative mother.
Carli doesn't understand her place in this new lifestyle that seems to go against her Christian foundations. Can her marriage to Gus survive the extreme pressures from work, society, and family? Or will she have to find her own path away from the dream of wedded bliss?
