Exiled in shame and wounded in battle, Caden O'Byrne accepts a mission of penance--to search for his healer's long-lost daughter. At worst, he'll finally get his death wish. At best, this could be God's second chance. But the lovely minstrel Sorcha wants no part in him, his newfound God, or the rescue. In fact, she's robbed him blind--to help finance her work of buying young captives and returning them to their families. She's also gone into debt and promised to marry a man she doesn't love--all for the chidlren's sake. But before she and Caden can sort out the situation, a treacherous murder forces them to run for their lives...together. While Caden's rekindled faith is tested, Sorcha wonders if his God is real. If so, can a thief like her dare hope for His mercy? And do the two of them have a chance of reaching home--Sorcha's real home--alive?
