Laurel Weidner desires a life of her own away from Philadelphia society and a dull, boring marriage. She is sent to live with her aunt in Lawrence, Massachusetts. When her aunt dies in a tornado, she gets a job at the Brown Textile Mill to avoid going back home. Two months later the mill burns down, and her father threatens to bring her back to Philadelphia.
When the mill and her livelihood perish with the fire, she has no other choice but to answer an ad in the Grooms' Gazette and become a Mail-Order Bride. Will she find peace and long lasting love in the arms of a stranger?
Griffin Benning needs a mother for his children. When his wife died, he lost his two children to his in-laws who claimed to have a better environment for raising his children.

Will his ad for a Mail-Order Bride provide what he needs? Can he find love and happiness with a stranger?
Can these two strangers find a common ground to reach their goals along with a happy-ever-after?
