Like flower seeds in the wind; Lily, Daisy and Rose must learn to bloom where they are planted.
Lily, Daisy, and Rose Wind were well mannered, well educated young ladies in 1874. Lily was 14, Daisy was 12, and the curly little redhead Rose, was 10. Suddenly their world came to an end when their parents died from a small pox epidemic. Daisy and Rose were put on an orphan train heading west. During the confusion at the crowded train station, Willy the Kid and Daisy had to crawl out of a tiny window to escape the law, and the train left without Daisy. Rose was alone on a train of unfamiliar faces. For seven years Daisy prayed that she would find her sisters again. Her whole world existed around 4 little cabins surrounded by mountains in the middle of nowhere in a deserted outlaw town called Hideaway, New Mexico. Willy taught Daisy to shoot and ride and Daisy taught the children and families in Hideaway about the Lord. She became the school teacher and the Bible preacher, and learned to love and respect her new families. At the age of nineteen, Daisy Wind knew she had to leave Hideaway, and take the long rough wagon ride to Silver City, New Mexico in search of Luke and Willy. She was in love with Luke, and his blue eyes, so she left her safe haven in Hideaway, and followed her heart to Silver City. She thought the Lord had sent her to this gambling town in search of Luke, but she discovered the real reason why the Lord sent her there, and her life would never be the same again. Through sickness and through health, Daisy followed her heart.
