The tale of lineage and legacy continues with Annabelle's escape into Indian Territory after fleeing from her cruel slave masters in Mercy, Missouri. In the wild west prairie lands of Oklahoma, she finds protection with her rescuers' Cherokee family and has to learn how to survive hidden within the Cherokee Nation. As she learns about Cherokee history, including the Trail of Tears, she also seeks guidance from an elder to heal from the traumas of her own past.

Embraced by some of the Cherokee people, she finds herself in conflict with others while an even greater danger from Indian Agents threatens. Evil stalks the nation, and in turn stalks her. As she stands against the wind in her grief from the trials and tribulations she experienced, an epic showdown between maintaining her faith in God and giving up her faith is now in motion.

Will Annabelle lose all hope of love and peace in her life?
