An Amish Mail Order Bride? That’s not what Clayton Tucker thought he was getting when he began to correspond with Emma Jane Miller.
Emma Jane shows up in Silver City, Nevada, a wild, mining town, to be Clayton Tucker’s mail-order bride. The only problem is, she left out one LITTLE detail about herself; she’s Amish!
Clay doesn’t take too kindly to being tricked and tries to send her on her way before the miners show up in town to give him his daily dose of ribbing. Being a pig farmer, Clay is the joke of the town, and the folks make it tough for him to make a living because of his trade. If he marries an Amish woman, things will only get worse for both of them and he realizes too late that he’s a coward and can’t marry her.
With no money to return home and Clay’s refusal to honor the marriage contract, Emma Jane must figure out how she will pay for a room in the boarding house in town until the stage comes back.
An early snowstorm threatens everyone’s plans; can Emma and Clay put aside their differences for Thanksgiving and for the sake of the town?
