With the matrimonial prospects in her little Michigan town virtually nonexistent, 19-year-old Faith--along with her sisters, Hope and June--answers an ad for mail-order brides. Before she knows it, she's on her way to Deliverance, Texas, determined to make a success of her marriage to wealthy rancher Nicholas Shepherd.
But from the moment she arrives in Deliverance, sparks begin to fly between Faith, a strong-willed tomboy, and her prospective husband--a man with a pretty strong will of his own! And then there's Liza, Nicholas's mother, who is anything but thrilled that her son has chosen a mail-order bride. After a string of wedding postponements and a slew of interfering people, a union between Faith and Nicholas begins to look less and less likely.
In the meantime, Faith and Nicholas are beginning to care for one another--but is their matching stubbornness destined to forever be a barrier between them?
