October 1915 Esther Joanna Webb of Gnadenhutten, Ohio visits her sister Frances in Eaton, Ohio. It is during that visit the Esther meets the youthful farmer, John Ezra Creager, a sometime clerk in the department store owned by her brother-in-law Warren Spring and his brother Charles. This is their written courtship. John's letters explain daily farming chores and his time attending a local business college, convey his intense love for Esther, and reveal concerns over the growing global conflict that draws the United States into World War I. Esther's letters detail the more mundane activities of a young lady living with her widowed mother during the latter part of the Progressive Era, but also express her love for the young man who will become her husband.
