After losing her mother and sister on malaria, as well as being threatened by the lecherous master of the house, she decides to leave for good. Over the next few months, Vera corresponds with Ephram Maloney, a farming Bachelor in Lexington, Nebraska and heads out to marry him. Despite being a bit concerned with his temper towards others, things go rather well until his irresponsible brother, Joshua, comes to stay. While Ephram wants nothing to do with him, Vera sees his brother as an opportunity to be a good person and gain another family member. The growing tension, combined with a devastating plague to their livestock, serves to drive the marriage apart. After Joshua is kidnapped by his old outlaw gang, however, the two must work together to save his life and stop the criminals from hurting anyone else.
