1890s – Washington
Kin Davis itches to leave Wyldhaven and experience life in the big city of Seattle. He only has one concern. Without Parson Clay’s taming influence, will he degenerate into an abusive drunk like his pa was? The question haunts him.
But there’s no escaping his departure. Word has gone out and his tickets are purchased. He only has to make it through the shindig Zoe organized for the townsfolk to offer their farewells. If anybody else was putting it on, he might skip town early, but he wouldn’t hurt Zoe for all the world. His escape would come soon enough.
Yet, as he goes throughout the day, the kindness of each Wyldhaven family touches him deeply. These are good people. Too bad there isn’t a woman in town who holds his interest.
Then a chance encounter with the pretty niece of Wyldhaven’s new bankers, rocks him to his core. And suddenly his trip to Seattle has lost most of its shine.
