Wedding preparations were underway when President Polk suddenly announced that war with Mexico was inevitable -- duty called and Grant was sent to Mexico.

After 2 years Grant escapes from a Mexican prison and returns home. He finds that Lydia has remarried and is now living in the Northwest. Many years pass until they meet again, both now widowed and realize that the "tender flame" has never gone out. Grant and Lydia come to realize that "As for God, His way is perfect."
