It is 1870. The Civil War ended five years ago; both the North and South are trying to deal with the loss of life and livelihood. The cost was high and the scars the survivors carry are not always easy to see.

Reuben Williams and his sister Beth live in Columbus, Georgia. Beth doesn't know why she is drawn to the tomb of Sergeant Paul Rankin. An unexplained feeling of sadness took over her heart the first time she read his marker. Now she visits his tomb on each trip she makes to the small cemetery as she tries to find information on her brother Levi whose body was never found.

Join the Williams as they move past the war and ride the rails west to their new home in Cheyenne.
