Maggie came to America for a better life. Unfortunately, her parents had died along the way and she arrived penniless and without a home--and no one to turn to.
This is a clean western mail order bride story about the romance Maggie and Andrew, set in the Napa Valley of California in the late 1880's.
Maggie has no one but herself and no where to go. She is desperate to simply survive in this unfamilair place. Found by a police officer days before she would surely have died, her life is completely turned around with the help of Miss Helen at her school for Mail Order Brides. She worries about fitting in and struggles with certain American habits pertaining to bonnets and dresses, but these are small things in the scope of life. Of most immediate concern is finding a life and someone to love.
Andrew was a professor in the east but went West to realize his dreams. He hadn't counted on the loneliness that would beset him. He longed for someone to share his life and work side by side ...
