Shelley Britton is the widow of an Apache warrior. She has been rescued from her captures and claimed by her brother, Joseph Britton.
She is living on Jo's ranch waiting for him to come home, with her daughter, Tawny, with the help of her foster mother, Singin' Woman.

Because of her treatment from the locals she has every reason to fear the tall, lean stranger who appears at her door with a blood-stained letter. There it all begins -- the love story.

Miles Cavanaugh was driven by guilt and pain to deliver the letter to Shelley Britton. He is astonished when he finds her alone on the ranch but weakened by pain and starvation he barely makes it inside. He also needs rest and feed for his buckskin stallion.

The story is a wonderful give and take with Shelley trying to decide which is better for her daughter - the Apache way of life, that she has lived for the past 10 years or the white man's way that her brother has been trying to teach her.

On the one hand her husband's brother, Quick To Kill wants her for his woman, yet she can make a living for herself and Tawny by gentling and training horses for the Army.
Until Miles's past catches up to him.

Miles is living with the pain of the lose of his family and knowing he can never go back.
He is also wanted for murder. The bluebellies are after him.

His gentleness and courage soon win Shelley and yet can she forgive him for his lie.
