When a businessman decides to develop a spa at the sacred Indian site of the Spring, Eden protests and is thrown into jail. There she meets Kit Randall, nephew of Brad Randall, a man that Eden has not forgotten in 10 years. Brad, now Commissioner of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, has taken a leave of absence from his job and his dissolving marriage to tour Indian agencies in the west and look for Eden, whom he also remembers. When Brad and Eden meet again, he helps her rediscover her past, but is thwarted by the unexpected arrival of her estranged husband, Lawrence Murdoch. When a disastrous event occurs, and Brad is placed in jail, Eden and Kit must use all their resources to find the true criminal before Brad's sentence is carried out.
