Pregnant & Widowed, But Not Telling Her New Husband - A woman is suddenly widowed, finds herself pregnant, and hurries to find a new husband in America. She does not tell the stern man who meets her at the train station about her former life for months, and when he finds out, the baby is due anytime.
Jake & Laura’s Story is about a lonely California rancher who requests a mail order bride, but considers sending her back when she tells him adamantly that she doesn’t want to get married yet -- or ever.
Harriet & Gavin’s Story - A woman is kidnapped from her coach while on her way to Southampton to join her mail ordered fiancé in America. The man tells her that he’s a travel officer there to help capture a trafficking gang and although cooperative, she feels that something is wrong. Once they reach Boston and after meeting her intended, she is again taken while staying at an inn on the way to Colorado. This time she knows that something is wrong and goes kicking and screaming into the night with her abductor. The mystery is revealed later at a farmhouse along the way.
Hannah & Tim’s Story - A woman from Ohio investigates a mail order bride fraud, and then decides to head off to meet a man who she had corresponded with and for whom her dead husband held high regards. Her Roy often visited her and offered his advice, although he was fading away rapidly. Her possible husband to be, meanwhile, is heading in her direction to try to find out if she’s real, and to also find the man who’d been defrauding them. This is a humorous and moving story and the epilogue is very emotional.
