Carlie and her new husband, Gus Dennis, enjoy thier small apartment and close church family in rural Virginia. The little they have belongs to them and brings them comfort. Unanswered questions in Guss past are not important-until the day a stranger comes to their door. Gus had preferred not to tell Carli that he was the only heir to Dennis Mining and Manufacturing-and unimaginable wealth. Now the company needs Gus as CEO, and Carlis ideal marriage suddenly faces the combined powers of high society and Guss manipulative mother. Carli doesnt understand her place in this new lifesytle that seems to go against her Christian foundations. Can her marriage to Gus survive the extreme pressures from work, society, and family? Or will she have to find her own path away from the dream of wedded bliss?
