Carolas life has been turned upside down the last few years. Newly divorced and a new graduate, she moves across the country to start life over. Brahma, South Dakota, is where her new place of employment is. This town appears to be as deserted as the nearby Badlands. The western culture and Indian reservations of the area open up a whole new world to her. The best part of her new job is meeting Ed Fraser. He is a very eligible bachelor, but his days as a bachelor are over the moment he meets Carol. Carol thinks her life is complicated enough without having to juggle a new relationship too. But maybe Ed is the best thing that could happen to her.
