Andrew Jordan, known to most of the locals as Deacon, is an old cowhand. He's roughed around for years doing work other folks didn't want to do. He's lived long enough to fight in a war, bury a son, and learn to appreciate the simplicities of life. A product of the last great American generation, he understands the importance of faith, commitment, and patriotism. The only thing he lacked was purpose. Now he's faced with losing the only thing in life that gives him purpose and it's up to his life long soul mate, Emily, to help him find his way. At ninety years old, he begins a journey into the past which will ultimately teach him it all starts with Loving Deacon.
