Desperately attempting to flee and escape an unfortunate incident in her life, Mallory Davenport leaves her once spirited, comfortable, carefree life, familiar home, and the western world behind to forget and repent. Her new vocation with a missionary group keeps her mind occupied as she sets the course to learn, teach, and aid under-privileged people living in the most remote locations in the world. Disappointed at having lost contact with Mallory as she seemed to have vanished from the face of the planet, yet haunted by her memory, loving character, and his need for wanting her in his life again - quite by accident - Gavin Templet's travels take him to the very site where the true-life, earthbound, living angel resides. Though Mallory is reluctant, they renew old acquaintances as he is on an unrelenting conquest to win his way into her unselfish heart. The angel is hell-bent and determined, however, to keep him at bay and not return his affection. Gavin's devotion and patience is unwavering as his drive and desire to follow, and help her live and love again, take him on expeditions to the farthest ends of the earth to prove that by trusting and believing in him, she can once again find sincere and genuine happiness.
