A doctor who suffered a great loss, a young and naïve mail order bride and twins craving motherly love.
Long-time bachelor and country doctor Eli Yoder is finally looking to tie the knot. But love, romance and companionship have nothing to do with it.
Instead, he is looking for a woman who will put aside her own needs, dreams and desires to become an ideal mother to his six-month-old twin nephew and niece. He has recently suffered great personal loss and what he is looking for is to balance his life.
Young, naïve Saloma Hofstader is being forced by her insensitive and cruel brother from the arms of the man she loves and into a marriage that is cold and emotionless.
Things change when Eli falls in love with the wife from his very practical marriage and finds in her comfort, love and joy. Thousands of miles away from the place she spent her childhood, in the rolling acres of Nebraska, will Saloma finally find passion, love and a home?
