Summary:

The practice of ministering to the widows and orphans is reflected in this story of Christina Willems, a young woman from Kansas in 1884 who is determined to reopen the poor farm she manages after a fire devastates the property. She finds opposition from many surprising corners but an unlikely ally in a lumber mill owner who wants nothing more than to hold himself aloof from the world and its troubles. Levi Jonnson agrees to take care of one of the poor farm residents, a young blind boy--and in doing so opens himself up to Christina's world in ways he wouldn't have imagined. Can he help her realize her calling once again -- or will he succumb to the safety of a solitary life with no chance of further pain?
