Boston, Massachusetts – 1862
After the death of her sweetheart, Louisa feels that there is nothing left in life for her, and wonders what she could possibly do to fill the years that lie ahead. When her sister Eleanor suggests that she consider becoming a mail order bride for one of the men in the frontier, Louisa is appalled, but with the prospect of her sister and brother leaving on the wagon train with their cousins, Louisa knows that she must make the decision to either be left alone without any relatives and only her painful memories, or to enter marriage with a man she doesn’t know.
When she finds an advertisement for a man who seems to have the same dry concept of such an arranged marriage, she thinks she might have made the right decision. A difficult wagon train journey with tragic consequences, however, leaves her wondering if all of the challenges that had been put in front of her were really to lead her to the man she was meant to be with all along, even if he enters her life in an unexpected way.
