Hannah Bunch wants to help heaven along by hatching a plan to bring a shy suitor up to the point of proposal. If Biblical Ruth could meet Boaz in the threshing field, couldn't Hannah work a similar plan at the farm's wellhouse? The snare worked perfectly, only the wrong man got trapped.
Henry Lee Watson likes his life without a wife. He makes the finest corn liquor in the territory. A good business on Saturday night does not make for a good marriage to a Sunday morning kind of woman. But it's a shotgun wedding and he's thinking the preacher's starchy old maid daughter is maybe not so starchy after all.
