This was a good book about second chances in life. Susan is a white woman and a nurse, who serves on a jury that convicts Cleveland Black Horse, a half-breed Indian and rodeo cowboy, of murder. She has her doubts about his innocence and allows herself to be coerced into voting "guilty". Cleve, wrongly convicted of murder, has to pick up the pieces of his life and learn to forgive and trust. A set of extraordinary circumstances brings Cleve and Susan together again and they must struggle to find their way to each other.
