In May of 1864, Reverend Adair and his daughter, Shannon, moved from Virginia. The Reverend was called to the church in the small mining town of Grand Coeur, Idaho. Shannon’s fiancé was killed in the first year of the Civil War and Shannon grew to have strong opinions about the war. While her father preached equality for all, Shannonwas a die-hard Southerner and she nursed the sick and wounded.
Matthew Debois, the stagecoach driver that brought the Adair’s to town, gave up his driving job for Wells, Fargo & Company to sit behind a desk. His sister, Alice, wrote and asked to come and stay with him while she is sick.
Matthew liked Shannon right away. She was a woman who knew her own mind. However, Shannon felt disrespect from Matthew because he had no opinion nor took any side in the war.
Matthew did not know why his sister was sick but soon found out that she had cancer and a weak heart. Alice only had a few months to live. She did not want to be a bother to her friends anymore (her husband died in the war). She needed someone to take care of her son, Todd, and Matthew was the only family left.
Matthew asked the Reverend if he knew of anyone who could be a nurse to Alice and keep an eye on Todd. He was surprised when Shannon offered her help. Maybe he misjudged her. But what was to happen to Todd? Alice knew that Matthew needed to go back to driving, that was his life. In order for Todd to be taken care of, she needed to find her brother a wife. But who in Grand Coeur? Shannon Adair?
