For 25 years, Terry Colby has lived a sheltered life. Raised and cared for by Elizabeth Cornish, Terry has been educated as a gentleman and led to believe that he is the last of the Colbys a fine old Virginia family. But, in truth, Terry is the son of the outlaw Black Jack Hollis. When Hollis was murdered, Elizabeth bet her brother, Vance, that she could raise Hollis’s son to be an honest man, that it was the environment and not the blood that determined a man’s character. Before the evening of Terry’s 25th birthday, Vance sets a series of events in motion that will put Elizabeth’s belief in Terry to the test.
