Mollie Sheehan loves her father and has always tried to be a dutiful daughter, to honor her father, even more so after her mother’s death. When Mollie falls in love with her father’s best friend, Peter Ronan, she is certain he will give his blessing. Surprisingly he is adamantly against their relationship and does everything in his power to keep them apart, even moving the family.

As the years go by in 1860s Montana, Mollie and Peter do not give up on each other and eventually they do marry and make a wonderful life for themselves among the Flathead People where Peter serves as an Indian Agent.

This is a romance that impacts family and friends and demonstrates the beauty of hospitality!
