Susannah feels betrayed. Susannah Killion feels like God deserted her over four years ago when her husband was killed at war. Everything she's done since, she's done on her own. So what is God doing when He sends the surveyor for the dreaded railroad to her doorstep--and he turns out to be the man who caused her husband's death? Thad Sutton arrives in Promise, Indiana, knowing his welcome will be tenuous at best. He works for the railroad, the arrival of which will likely sound the death knell for the canal-dependent town. Not only that, but he bears a long-overdue letter for a widow of a soldier under his command. But he couldn't have expected what happens when he meets the Widow Killion. God's mysterious ways are at work in Promise, Indiana, and the town will never be the same again.
