Josephine Gray leaves the only life she's ever known to escape her lecherous employer, going west to marry a stranger. She knows next to nothing about the man she will meet other than his name when she arrives in Montana. A former maid, she worries that she won't be the kind of wife the handsome stranger needs.
Gustav Schmidt sends for a mail-order bride as soon as his ranch is capable of supporting a wife. He's not terribly worried about much about the woman, other than the fact she can cook. When he finally meets pretty Josie, he is surprised that he is so attracted to her. He doesn't plan to change his life much, still having every intention to attend the German-speaking church he and his brother helped establish.
Can Josie learn the language of her husband to fit in with her new community? Or will she fail at the most important job of her life…being a wife?
