Julia Hollister's father is having a difficult time making ends meet, and the only option he sees is to marry off his daughters. Stone Michaels has become a successful rancher. He has everything he wants, except for one thing: a family. After he realizes there is very little chance of finding a single woman where he is in the mountains of Colorado, he responds to Mr. Hollister's letter about Julia. Stone offers no promises but states that he will cover her travel expenses, and she can stay with the pastor and his wife until he is ready to marry her. Will Julia willingly marry Stone, or will she return to her home in Virginia alone?
