She’s expecting to get married, he doesn’t know he’s the groom.
When Amelia’s parents pass away from illness, she doesn’t know what to do with her life. She hates the thought of burdening her relatives and is desperate enough to do almost anything. When her neighbors tell her their grandson, a preacher out in Birch Creek in the Idaho Territory is in need of a wife, and that she’d be perfect for him, part of her thinks it’s a viable solution. Especially since she knew him before and admired him from afar.
When Reverend Benjamin Morrison receives his grandfather’s letter, he’s certain he can help Miss Amelia Clover find a husband, completely misunderstanding his grandfather’s hints in the letter.
When she arrives expecting to marry the preacher, he’s at a loss and not sure what to do until the town sheriff convinces him that married life really isn’t all that bad. But can the two of them actually fall in love, or will they be doomed to a loveless arrangement of a housekeeper and companion?
