Widower Connor Maguire advertises for a wife to raise his daughter, work the homestead and bear him a son. Ellen O’Sullivan longs for a home, a husband and a family. On paper, she is everything Connor needs in a wife.
However, it soon becomes clear that Ellen has not been entirely truthful. As their personal feelings blur the boundaries of their deal, they begin to wonder if a bargain struck makes a marriage worth keeping.
