Emily Cannon is not the mail-order bride Luke Becker sent for. The tall, plain teacher has come to Oregon with the veil and gown her sister was to have worn to marry Luke.
Widower Luke Becker needs a mother for his young daughter. He accepts Emily as his wife or his girl's sake but offers only his name and shelter to the proud, vulnerable stand-in.
