Virginia Price, a privileged New York debutante, pregnant from a rape, travels west to bear her child away from New York society. Henry Mohr, exhausted from combat in the trenches of World War I and haunted by his abusive father, returns home to his family's Wyoming ranch. They are the most unlikely of lovers. Virginia, at seventeen, is at home in New York's after-hours speakeasies; Henry, only with a concrete task before him: breaking a horse to saddle, sinking a fence post. Sharing nothing but loneliness and a certain watchfulness of soul, they begin an affair that soon grows into something beyond their control.
At first it seems purely physical, or as if their bodies were instinctively being drawn together to fill in each other's absences. But when a man from New York arrives to claim Virginia's hand in marriage and Henry's father threatens to repeat his past abuses, they must confront their love for each other. With a suspenseful, page-turning plot and set amid the exquisitely rendered landscape of the Rocky Mountain West.
