Story intro

Liz lives in the old west with her husband (Eli) and two children: Eli's son (Matthew) from Eli's prior marriage, and Liz and Eli's young daughter (Sam). Liz is a midwife who can hear but is mute, and so communicates through sign language. A new minister comes to their church, and the moment that Liz hears his voice, she seems to recognize him and is terrified. That same day Liz is forced to choose between a delivering a baby safely or saving its mother, and the father (Nathan) blames and threatens Liz. After Eli's sheep are killed, he seeks out Nathan, who has disappeared. Liz then sneaks off at night to kill the Minister, and finds her daughter's doll in the Minister's bed. The Minister disembowels Eli, and leaves him to die. Eli tells Matthew to take the family up into the mountains to Eli's father, before the boy shoots him. Liz and the children flee the farm. A young girl named Joanna walking through the desert is picked up by a Chinese family. In the mining town of Bismuth, she's sold to a brothel owned by Frank. Joanna is protected by Sally until Sally is hanged for shooting a violent customer; Elizabeth then protects girl. After Elizabeth bites the tongue of an abusive customer, her tongue is cut off in punishment. Joanna teaches Elizabeth sign language from a book the doctor gave her. Elizabeth plans to sneak out of Bismuth to start a new life, and arranges through a marriage broker to marry Eli. The Minister comes to the brothel and becomes violent with Joanna. Elizabeth saves Joanna and is killed by the Minister. Joanna slashes his throat and runs away, cutting off her own tongue and taking Elizabeth's place with Eli.
