Colorado, 1877.
Mary MacEilan is sick of being isolated and unnoticed. So she does what any young, headstrong lady of her caliber would do: she runs away.
Making a life for herself in the city of Denver is not as easy as it sounds- although she becomes remarkably lucky, leading to further issues. There are more factors than just her will to be on her own. And she certainly can't trust herself- especially not when it comes to Keith Little, the son of the owner of the general store that she works at. Yet she has her independence- but even such a fiery woman as Mary doesn't know what to do with it. She has to realize that her choices will impact her life forever. 
How will Mary make use of her newfound independence? And when she does, will it be the right choice?
