Civil War widow Miranda Markham is at the end of her rope. She has been ostracized by Galveston community where she has turned the family home into a boarding house. A prison promise between Confederate soldiers/officers leads Robert Truax to Miranda’s house to check in on her. The townsfolk, encouraged by Miranda’s bitter mother-in-law and sister-in law, call her deceased husband a traitor and a spy. Miranda knows, as does Robert, that it cannot be true. But, how do you survive such a hostile environment? Robert arrives to protect Miranda and eventually learns of the threatening letters she receives each week. Who can be trusted in this community to help Miranda move forward?
