Lacy Butler is graced with the gift of healing. She can save
strangers—even those undeserving—yet fails to save her mother. Rejecting
her gift, God, and society, she's content to live alone high above the mining
town of Harperville. But her solitude is shattered when Royce Darnell builds a
water flume through the middle of her mountain. To protect her sanctuary, Lacy
sabotages his efforts. Little does she expect Royce to track her through a
blizzard and end up half frozen to death on her doorstep. She can heal him, but
why should she when he threatens to steal her peace...and her heart?
With the livelihood of the miners and their families depending on his
project, Royce refuses to stop building, no matter how good the reason or how
lovely the masked saboteur turns out to be. Besides, he's convinced God wants
Lacy to use her gift for good and not to hole up in her cabin like a reticent
recluse afraid of human contact. But first, she must learn to trust, and Lacy
doesn't trust anyone, not Royce and especially not God. Soon Royce finds himself
in a battle to save the two things he loves the most—Harperville and Lacy. Is
his faith strong enough to save them both?
