Widow Esther Hollis made a dreadful mistake when she married a second time to Mr. Albertson. Her new husband is confined to prison from some ten years for forgery.
She has only one son, Jeremiah Hollis, whom she calls Rock. He makes a living for himself and his mother by ferrying passengers across the Nolan River.
Confusion erupts when the stepfather is released from the penitentiary early. He creates havoc for everyone. When his friend accompanies him, double trouble ensues.
Rock too has allies...and enemies. Seeking to better himself and his mother, he finds himself in a precarious position. What will be the outcome?
A touch of uncertainty, a smattering of romance, and an act of God keep the plot floating along.
