Christine Bristol is sick of waiting. For three years she’s done as everyone tells her, putting aside dreams of the handsome photographer who captured her girlish fancy, trying to forget the mother who abandoned her on the stage to Abilene. Now she doesn’t care who gets hurt in her desperate bid to follow her heart. Heading across the prairie in a cramped, horse-drawn wagon, Christine discovers that much of the bitterness she’s known comes from her own lack of faith. On her journey of discovery to San Francisco, Christine finds a love that reunites her with her real family; puts her in touch with her true self; and brings her back to the simple Kansas homestead.
