Barbara has made good money in Miami's grand hotels as a sketch artist. Albert hates the glamour of hotels. He insists she give up her pastels and paint portraits in oil, using his color system. He vows he can change Mankind's bigotry and prejudice by proving that all people have shared color rays and can understand their own potential by having their portrait painted. Unfortunately, Albert needs Barbara to paint the portraits. She prefers to paint the old way, free and messy.
They travel to Atlanta Georgia, buy 14 acres with goats and chickens.
Barbara becomes pregnant. Albert is furious. This was not supposed to happen. He wants her to remain dedicated to Art and the color system. The child dies of neglect. The tragedy has changed them both. Even their beliefs are not the same. Barbara yearns to return to the richer, easier life she came from, but knows there is no going back.
In the years following three children are born. The portraits never lead to man's salvation. In desperation, Albert wants land. They move to a farm. Will this venture also fail, or can they unite in love to win their dreams and aspirations? This story of family relationships is sorely tested through their adventures along the way.
