May Wilde only wanted security. Having lived in harsh circumstances most of her life, she wouldn't dare dream of finding love. Rather, she'll settle for a husband who will provide for her, and rely on their children to fill the empty space in her heart. She thinks she has found that man in bank manager Edwin Talbot. Until he betrays her, branding her a thief. Railroad foreman Travis Worth finds it difficult to prove her fiancé wrong. But she is such a caring woman that she stirs in Travis the remembrance of his other life as a doctor before the war. A career he turned his back on when he failed to save the life of his best friend. But if May didn't steal the payroll, who did?
As May and Travis crisscross the Colorado plains searching for the real thief, they discover more than money. But can Travis let go of his wounded past? Will May believe that she is worthy of his love?
