No one expects the statuesque Minnie Wilson to ever leave the quiet solitude of her family home in nineteenth-century Brooklyn. As a strongly independent woman, marriage has never seemed likely to be in the cards for her, either. The only times she ever ventures out is to help her father in his dry goods store. But after he passes away, she’s presented with a hard decision to make: continue to be tied to relatives who don’t understand her or take her chances on love as a mail-order bride in the wild, former mining town of Chase, California.
A wild storm at sea and a bumpy arrival to her new home reveal that not all is as it seems beyond the four walls of her childhood home. Quirky personalities emerge with unexpected talents in the aftermath of a tragic attack on the town. But from the ashes, Minnie and her fiance Elias must find the resolve to rebuild their lives and redirect their shaky, unequal relationship into something stronger.
