Can true love overcome a legacy of betrayal?

Rachel wants her older half-sister Leah to wed and move out of their household. Leah wishes her father would find a good man who would love her alone. Meanwhile, Jacob is making his way to their home to escape a past laced with deceit. He hopes instead to find the future God has promised him.
