Living in an arranged marriage, Beth understands she will never have her husband's love. William has known her since she was a child, but he also has made it quite clear that he believes unspeakable lies about her character-and about their son. Resigned to making the best of a difficult situation, Beth works to create a home with her husband in the wilderness of Australia. But she can't stop wondering why God seems so distant-and why she can't gain the approval of those she loves. When a huge brush fire threatens to destroy all she has worked so hard to build, will her dreams turn to ashes? Or will Beth discover a miracle of love in the Great Southland?
