Wilhelmina, Minnesota 1881 -- Clara Frazier, the only child of a widower, is committed to caring for her father for as long as she's needed--even at the expense of two marriage proposals. But when her father is injured in a farming accident, Clara can't take care of everything. Reluctantly, she turns to the neighbors for help. At once, kind-hearted and handsome Titus Klaassen volunteers to be the Fraziers' farmhand on loan. He's a very able worker, but can he woo the woman who has given up on love?
