She thought God had forgotten her, until a pastor reached out from Wyoming and offered her a brand-new life. But can she let go of the memories she left behind to love again?
Missy Stanton believes her life is over when her husband, Tommy, dies in a tragic work accident in the railyards of Boston. Alone in the city with no family and worse prospects, she turns to the Matrimonial Times in a moment of weakness. There, she meets Pastor Jack Tibsdale, who offers her a home in a place in Birch River, Wyoming, in return for her hand in marriage.
Jack Tibsdale loves being a pastor, but it can be a lonely life, especially in a mining town like Birch River. With every woman married in town already, Jack must turn to writing to a mail-order bride. Touched by her plight, he offers her a marriage out of friendship but soon realizes that her kind soul and beautiful face is exactly what he was looking for.
After a quick marriage, Jack and Missy slowly get to know each other as Missy navigates her grief. Just as she believes that she may have a future in the beautiful town of Birch River, she discovers that she is carrying Tommy’s child. Falling in love with the kind, handsome pastor, she begins to worry: How can she tell this man that she’s having another man’s baby?
With time running out, and two hearts on the line, will Missy and Jack learn to trust in God’s plan.
