Like the biblical Hannah, Jasmine Kirmis had prayed for children. After Jasmine and Evert Kirmis adopt their second child, Autumn, they believe their family unit is complete: a daughter along with their son, Jacob. Jasmine visualizes a close bond among the four of them, playing and working in harmony, sharing a common faith and vision of the future. However, as the child with golden eyes and golden hair matures, there is an aloofness about her, almost a resentment for the adoptive family, school, and small North Dakotan community in which she resides. When Jasmine suddenly is dropped into the role of a single parent, Autumn�s abrasive personality becomes lethal, annihilating every attempt her mother makes to bridge the widening gap between them. Finally, Autumn's longed-for day of freedom arrives: high school graduation, when she can rid herself of her self-righteous family and small hick community. She moves out of the state, cutting off all communication with those who love her the most, even turning her face from God who could help her in the dark days ahead. Will Jasmine's prayers for her daughter ever be answered? Has God too given up on the wayward young lady who had once been her mother's answer to her prayer?
