Within the practical mindset of the 1800s, five marriages are arranged for various reasons that don't include love. Emily gets a ready-made family by marrying a widower whose children need a mother. Regina's family has arranged a groom for her from their homeland of Germany. Chiquita is bartered away in marriage to cover her father's debts. Pearl accepts a grief-stricken farmer's proposal to help him run the farm. Sarah Jane is forced to marry a wagon train scout for propriety's sake. Can romance develop out of awkward beginnings, or will love forever elude these couples?
