With the death of her mother and brother, Cadence Cassidy decides to run away from a drunken father who has beaten her for the last time. When fever struck, Cady’s mother had shorn her hair short as a boy’s, giving her the idea to don her brother’s clothes and strike out on her own. The contents of a satchel kicked under her bed are a mystery, but she unwittingly takes it…not realizing until it is too late, her father will hunt her down to find it. Born in abject poverty, Cadence, at seventeen, believes no God exists and if He does, He certainly doesn’t like her. Cady’s journey leads to a legacy beyond her wildest dreams.
