It is the late nineteenth century in the United States, and Alton and his family are forced to leave their small town of Texas after Alton gets in trouble with the local gang there. Not knowing where else to go, they head north in hopes of a better, safer life. But it isn’t long before Alton’s mother gets sick and his siblings get hungry. Desperate, Alton is willing to do anything to survive.

Mary Anne has to get married in order to rid herself of her spinster status in Kansas City, Kansas. While she is perfectly fine with living in her father’s mansion as an unmarried woman, her father is embarrassed by her poor reputation in their hometown, and demands that she hire someone to marry her. Reluctantly, she travels throughout Kansas in search of the ideal man. And then she comes across Alton.

Could this meeting be the answer to both their prayers?
