Harry Bourne, owner of Gloryoak, treats Rachel with kindness and compassion, unaware that his missing brother, Tom, was one of her assailants. Rachel believes she will never feel passion again, but is so grateful for Harry's protective love she marries him. When the third Bourne brother, Matt, returns to Gloryoak after fighting Apaches in Arizona, a dangerous attraction blazes between Rachel and the former soldier. Matt tries to cut his visit short, but an unthinkable tragedy irrevocably bonds him to Rachel and sends the pair on an eight-hundred-mile journey to a grassy valley in the Big Bend region of the Rio Grande. There they meet Guadalupe and her baby, Juan, the only survivors of a brutal raid on their Mexican border village. In a world of savage violence and austere grandeur, the four outcasts must rely on each other to succeed. Matt hires on at a nearby ranch, teaching the vaqueros how to fend off raiding Comanches, while Rachel and Lupe hunt for food and make adobe bricks to build a house. When the Civil War erupts and Matt is called to join the fight, the women bravely defend their fledging ranch from bandits.
