The lovely Francesca di Paoli arrives in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, in 1925, during a time of turmoil. The peace is shattered by a massive landslide and flooding, and some local residents are up in arms against new proposals for land use and progressive ideas about racial and ethnic equality.
Francesca finds work as a cook at the Sutton family’s dude ranch, where the two sons, William and Bryce, vie for her love. But the earth has not finished trembling, nor the river rising. When the flood waters retreat, who will be left standing?
