Felicity works in a millinery shop in upstate New York during the 1880s. A letter arrives from the man she was engaged to marry announcing his sudden marriage to another. This crushes Felicity and she has many difficult days where she reflects on her life and the inevitable future of living with her parents. After shedding many tears, she looks at a newsletter that lists mail order bride advertisements. Despite a broken heart, she writes to a doctor in Montana. Felicity hopes to have a home and family of her own, even if she can never truly love again.
Will Dr. Walsh’s solitary ways, habits and quirks be an ultimate barrier for the two of them? Are their worlds too different to grow a meaningful connection? Will anger win out over patience? Can there be love and healing after heartbreak? What stops Dr. Walsh from relating as he did when he wrote his letters? Will their emotional distance be permanent?

Raina Sun is cashing in a gift certificate for a free hairstyle from the town’s premier beauty salon and day spa. No more walking dandelion head, thank you very much. Life is on the up-and-up—until she finds an attacker holding her best friend in a headlock outside the treatment rooms.
She never thought she would spend her birthday pinned against a rice paper screen, gagging on a mouthful of seaweed, with the attacker plucking at her best friend’s weave like a farmwife de-feathering a chicken.
The storm is far from over. When the attacker ends up six feet under, her best friend becomes the prime suspect.
