Katherine Bains lost everything when her parents died of consumption in England and she was shunted off to Canada to live with an aunt she never knew. Once she met and married Frank McLean, however, she thought her pain and sadness were gone forever. Then a tragic fire destroys her house and takes the life of her precious infant son. Katherine, Frank, and their two daughters must leave their home and start anew in frigid, rough, lumberjack territory. Long ago, she'd abandoned any faith in a God who would allow such devastation and despair to happen. But when catastrophe and heartbreak tail the family and a series of events finds Katherine frightened and hopeless in the deep north wilderness, she discovers she has never been alone. God's mercy is always near, and help comes in the most unexpected ways.
