Kate Dawson was supposed to be a mail-order bride, but upon realizing she\'d been deceived about her intended groom, she\'s now settled into life as a schoolteacher. When the mother of a student passes away, Kate assumes she\'ll take on care of nine-year-old Anthony--until two men suddenly show up in town, claiming to be the boy\'s father.
Silas can see Anthony loves Kate, so he enlists her help in reaching out to the boy and attempting to prove his paternity to the court. When a common interest in Anthony leads to an interest in each other and Silas and Kate begin to think they can overcome their rocky start, neither is prepared for the secrets and past hurts that have yet to come to light. Can Silas, Kate, and Anthony\'s wounded souls bind them together or will all that stands between them leave them lonely forever?
