Missoula Mills, Montana Territory – 1887
Samson Delaney, a handsome, hard-working lumber mill owner in Missoula Mills, Montana, has grown lonely and longs for a wife to spend his life with. His good friends had been fortunate enough to find their brides through newspaper advertisements, so he decides to ask one of these wives, Mrs. Virginia Monroe, to help him write an advertisement of his own.
Before long, he is receiving letters from women all over the east coast. None impress him as much as the first letter he receives from a young lady by the name of Miss Tabitha McGregor, a lovely former librarian who works at a book shop in New York. The pair exchange letters until, at last, she arrives to be with him.
With Christmas coming soon, Samson decides to mark the occasion by proposing to Tabitha, with the intent to marry her on Christmas morning. Tabitha, on the other hand, begins to start having second thoughts about marrying a man she has only just met.
Will Samson have a bride for the holidays, or will he be left brokenhearted underneath the mistletoe?
