Newly widowed and with a baby daughter, Sadie McLaughlin has been living on the goodwill of her aunt and uncle. Unwilling to add to their burden any longer, Sadie travels west as a mail order bride—only to find that the man does not want her anymore. Alone and hundreds of miles from home, Sadie takes a job at the town’s General Store. And there she meets Dakota Blake, a handsome young Indian whose kindness immediately soothes Sadie’s broken heart.
Although Dakota Blake and his tribe are tolerated by the town, they are far from accepted. Still, Dakota finds himself falling in love with this gentle and gracious woman. But prejudices run deep, and Dakota fears that he could never give Sadie the life she needs—even if it comes with all his love. Nor would the town allow it.
But the heart is strong, and prejudice cannot withstand the force of true love.
