In 1879 Omaha librarian Lise Dupree struggles to keep her part-Sioux heritage hidden as she reluctantly agrees to help research legal questions for a band of Ponca Indians led by Standing Bear. What begins as a quest for justice becomes a search for identity as she encounters ambitious district attorney Zach Spencer in a battle that will force them both to change the roles they have created for themselves.
In the process they confront Lise's haunting past Zach's political aspirations the dangerous prejudice of an unstable Indian agent and the subtle differences between justice and the law. They discover smoldering love and a shared passion for justice -- theirs if they can embrace the changes which have allowed them to open their hearts to one another.
