Priscilla Barton is not the prettiest girl in the town of Harperwill, and she knows it. She is picked on at school; and she tries to stay strong in front of her peers, but inwardly she envies the beauty of the girls who tease her. Priscilla's one desire in life is to have outward beauty.
When an accident involving her little brother Tia occurs, Priscilla has a chance encounter with a stranger named Eber. Eber helps her discover a beauty far greater and infinitely more precious than all of the most beautiful faces, in the entire world combined.
