This story opens with two great-aunts searching for their niece and her daughter. They find their niece dead in a New Orleans brothel and her daughter (9-year-old Susannah), alone. Susannah has grown up too fast in the brothel and is scarred by her experiences. The aunts take the child to Bluebonnet, Texas.

When Reed Garrett shows up in Bluebonnet and asks for a job on Susannah's farm, she turns him down. A few miles down the road, Reed is robbed and beaten. The aunts hire Reed and give him a place to stay; Susannah is not happy.

From the opening pages, the reader knows that Reed is not what he seems. The reader also surmises that Susannah has been hiding from men because of her early childhood. This story shows how each character faces the past to build a future. The subject matter is handled very well.
