An immigrant Irish girl and a veteran lawman battle for their lives when they stand between one man’s obsession and the Lost Adams gold.

Nineteen year-old Sarah Ryan sets forth alone from Ireland to make a new life on her sister’s homestead, but her future is shattered by gunfire. Determined to raise her orphaned nephew, Sarah struggles to overcome the hardships of life on a cattle ranch, confront a venomous town sheriff, and bridle her desire for a mysterious Texas Ranger.
