Do we take our lifestyles for granted? The restaurants, stores, and technology that make our lives easier. Or that we can get our hot water or adjust a room’s temperature with the turn of a knob. What about turning on a light with the flip of a switch and refrigerating our food? And if we want to go somewhere, that we can get in our car or take a plane.

And what of those that lived before us? Did they too take their lifestyle for granted? They were used to heating their water, building their fires, making their clothing, growing their food, and riding their horses to go somewhere.

But what if the two worlds collided? Would you be willing to give up everything you know for love?

Heath was worth everything to Bridget. This mighty warrior was worth whatever it took to be with him.

What would you do if you found yourself all alone in the world except for the child growing within you? You are legally married to the son of a very prominent family, but he was drunk and doesn’t remember ever having married you.

He abandons you in your time of need and leaves the country while you are sent to an unwed mother’s home to have your infant. There they try to convince you to give your child up for adoption, and you fight to be able to make a home for the two of you.

As you struggle to make a home and give your child all the love you have to give, you fear that the father or his parents will discover his existence and take him away from you.

As time passes you find that your husband is to wed another while your heart breaks and it appears he doesn’t remember or want you to be a part of his life. You must make the decision that your child will never know his father…UNTIL a medical condition forces you to revel the truth to the father and pray he will not attempt to take him from you.
