A new visitor to Promise is raising eyebrows. Travis Grant, an "Easterner" with the audacity to write books about the West, is a guest at Nell Bishop's dude ranch. Nell's eyebrows, however, are being raised by Travis' sparkling personality and handsome face. Though she keeps telling herself that it's too soon to fall in love, Nell can't keep her heart quiet. It would seem that Travis can't keep quiet, either, as he seems intent on stirring up the town--and the msytery in its past.
