Hannah Munroe stumbles through the snow towards a cabin, nearing exhaustion, with no memory of her past—not her name, not why she is wandering alone in the woods in the dead of winter with nothing but the clothes on her back. Within this sanctuary she finds Dow Coulter, a man seemingly lost to illness and despair. As they learn more about each other they begin to wonder: has God brought them together?

His eyes were stormy, filled with pain and wrath. She had unwittingly touched off something terrible in this man, and she was afraid. Silently, she called out, Help us, Lord!
