Beverly Snow lived a charmed life until a car accident when she was eighteen. She lost her father and sister, and her mother became a quadriplegic all in one night. After giving up her own life for twenty years to care for her mother, she's at loose ends in the midst of her grief with her mother's passing. When her last promise to her mother turned into her agreeing to an arranged marriage to a stranger and moving to Alaska, she's not sure what to think.
Colin Geller has spent his entire adult life knowing two things. He loved being a park ranger at Denali National Park in Alaska, and he didn't want children. He requests that Dr. Lachele send him a woman who was comfortable with not having children. When he sees Beverly for the first time, he knows that all his dreams have come true. When something happens to make him rethink his life choices, he's devastated. Will he be able to deal with his new wife's choices? Or will her insistence on something he opposes keep them apart forever?
