Constance Dailey doesn't feel like she could possibly belong with her family. At eighteen, she has no prospects for marriage and wants more than anything to feel as if she's not totally alone in the world. Running into Elizabeth Tandy, the matchmaker in town, gives her an idea, and she talks about her needs. Reading a letter from a stranger in South Dakota tells her everything will be fine, and she agrees to be his mail order bride.
Leonard Berry loves his life. He has a good job, a home, and everything seems to be going his way. Everything except for romance. So he writes to a matchmaker hoping to find the woman of his dreams. Meeting Constance is all he'd ever hoped for, and he knows their marriage will be nothing short of perfect.
When he doesn't seem to accept how she feels about certain things, it hurts Constance's feelings immensely. Will the two of them be able to get past their differences? Or is this marriage doomed from the start?
