Betrayed by the woman he loved, he lost his passion for people and God! When he finds his Lady, can he gain back his Identity and his Faith?
Doc Dailey is a handsome New Orleans gambler who makes his living in sporting halls and riverboats. But when Doc falls in love with Kate Dubois, the elegant hostess of the Natchez Queen―and wins $25,000 one night―he finds out that a man can be too lucky.
The riverboat owner hates having to fork out the money, and when he sees that Doc has stolen Kate―the woman he wants for himself―Doc’s jealous rival puts a bounty on his head.
Doc is a marked man, and must abandon his former life. He seeks refuge in the mountains above Wolf Table Colorado, and becomes known to the townsfolk as Gideon McCall.
After ten years of hiding, Doc finally comes down to live in Wolf Table, but disaster still threatens. A strange mountain man called the Prophet predicts that a woman will endanger Doc’s life, and that he’ll be dead within a year―unless he can resist her beauty and charm.
