Toby Markham lost his ma and inherited the farm. He needed a wife and ordered a mail order bride. He chose Bessie because she wrote letters to him of her loving her grandma's farm when she was young. He decided she was the woman for him and to work along side him to make the farm bigger and better. What he didn't count on, was finding out her pa left her a sizeable inheritance. He was worried that she wouldn't be happy living in a small one room cabin and he couldn't afford to give her a Christmas like she was used to.
Bessie was happy that Toby chose to marry her. She looked forward to their first Christmas together. She didn't care that he was a dirt poor farmer. She spent her younger years staying with her grandma on her farm. Bessie knew Toby was upset with her because she was a wealthy woman, but she had one more secret she didn't tell him about. What would she do if the one person she wanted to run away from came to town and caused trouble?
