Samuel Yoder wants to court and eventually marry Nancy King. Nancy’s father, Abraham, forbids her to consider marrying anyone. Bitterness, over his wife’s death, consumes him and makes life unbearable for family and friends. Add to Abe’s devastated heart a terrible storm that destroys his property, and it appears nothing can penetrate his defences.
But when another catastrophe is averted by Nancy’s quick thinking it shakes Abraham to the core.
Is it enough to melt his bitterness and open his heart to the possibility of his daughters happiness as a wife for Samuel?
