A recent graduate of Harvard Medical School, Hunter McGuire moves to Lexington, Virginia, to complete his internship at a large clinic. There, he falls in love with young nursing student Jodie Lockwood, who is just leaving town to finish training as a surgeon's assistant. Sadly, by the time he musters up enough courage to follow her to Baltimore, she has moved on, and Hunter can no longer find her. In the years that follow, Dr. Hunter McGuire joins his childhood friend Tom -- now "Stonewall" -- Jackson at the front lines of the Civil War, while praying for God to return to him his lost love. Miraculously, years later Hunter and Jodie cross paths once again and pledge their love to one another. Yet, out of the past comes a deep, dark family secret that threatens their future, and only the God of heaven can save their love.
