1800s – New Mexico Territory
Growing up on the Double B Ranch has given Lizzie Bradley ample opportunity to indulge her tomboy whims. At nineteen, Lizzie has yet to realize she’s on the threshold of womanhood-though Adam McKenzie, one of her father’s ranch hands, is very much aware of her maturing appeal. When handsome Tom Mallory makes a dramatic entry into her life, Lizzie begins to sense her own womanhood in the light of his open admiration. Tension mounts as both Tom and Adam vie for Lizzie’s favor. Lizzie swings from elation to despair before she learn to gauge a man’s worth according to God’s standards-and to find the joy of a relationship grounded in Christ.
