In 1886 Seattle, orphan Charlotte Bates is horrified when the evil Mr Graynger informs her that on her upcoming 18th birthday, she WILL become his wife.

But Charlotte simply can't marry him ... she won't! He is vulgar, putrid and disrespectful - not to mention, over three times her age.

With help from her best friend Beth and the kindly Mistress Belle, Charlotte is soon heading west to marry young farmer Thomas Ackerman in Conrad, Montana.

As her life in Conrad unfolds, Charlotte meets a wonderful mix of townsfolk, including her future husband Thomas, the lovely Louise, the interfering Mabel, and, an adorable 8-year-old named Junior.

But even in Paradise, life doesn't always turn out the way we might hope or expect it to.

Has Charlotte jumped from the frying pan into the fire?

Or might she learn that amidst the mud and the blood and the tears, romance and love can materialize in the most magical, unexpected ways…
