ChangeBook - 2009
Catherine Sutherland and David Winters have grown up as best friends in Lexington, Missouri. Now, in 1869, just as they realize their childhood friendship has grown into love, Catherine's step-father moves her family west by wagon train. Though devastated by this separation, Catherine and David still believe that God has purposed for them to marry and spend their lives in His service. As a jeweler's apprentice, David creates a beautiful gold heart necklace for Catherine, keeping half the heart to unite with hers when he comes to marry her in two years. Catherine finds comfort in David's necklace, the only tangible proof of his love she will have in his absence. In the coming months, both their lives change drastically. Catherine endures hardships and sorrow she never expected to know as her family settles on a hard-dirt Kansas farm. David is swept into success through his jewelry and enticed to enter the world of the rich and famous in New York City. Can the untested young love between Catherine and David stand the test of these changes? Can they resist the pull of other relationships as they live worlds apart? Dangers of the untamed west require Catherine to rely on her faith as never before, yet her heart despairs of ever seeing David again when her necklace is lost to her.As she and her brothers flee from the Indian raid that leaves their sod home in flames behind them, Catherine is left with only one thing --her confidence that God is still in control, therefore, she will never relinquish hope that somehow she and David will be reunited.
