As an 1840s Boston socialite, Cordelia Endicott's life is full of dreams for a bright future. But in the twinkling of heaven's eye, her world changes dramatically when she meets Redmond, a handsome Irishman. Eloping after a whirlwind courtship and romance, the star-crossed lovers are heartbreakingly ripped apart by unseen forces at work. Unaware of God's plan for them, the pair travel separate pathways over a span of forty years, all the while deepening their faith in God. Through the Civil War and beyond, their stories of personal tragedies and triumphs will intertwine, leading the couple down the path God has chosen for them, unaware that two heavenly messengers are keeping close watch over them. Will they ever be reunited in their love for one another and for God? The answer to that question can be found only by having the faith of a dove.
