Overview
Sophie Davenport feels like a prisoner in her own

house. In her twenty-two years, her overprotective

parents have taken every possible measure to keep her

from anything that might exacerbate her asthma in

other words, just about everything but reading and

needlework. Yet Sophie longs for adventure and for love.

She corresponds clandestinely with a would-be suitor,

until they meet and her wheezing scares him off. It seems

her fragile health just might sentence her to a lifetime of

monotonous inactivity.

Josh Harper is far more bookish than his brawny

brothers. The middle child, he enjoys helping at his

family's stagecoach stop in Kansas, where he spends a

great deal of time crafting furniture and other items out

of wood. But, before long, his book smarts draw him to

the nearby city of Windmill, where he begins work as

manager of his uncle's bank. He also looks after his niece

and nephew, who spend their weeks in town to attend

school. The change of scenery is welcome, but Josh yearns

for a family of his own. Too bad eligible females are not

plenteous on the prairie.

When Sophie's aunt, a resident of Windmill, falls

ill and requires help, Sophie volunteers. Despite his

hesitation, her father finally relents and lets her go, as

there is no other option. Her new role brings her into

contact with the children boarding at her aunt's home

and with the handsome uncle of two of them. Is there a

larger purpose in her coming to Windmill? Or will Josh

Harper reject her, if not for her frail health, then for the

rocky nature of their relationship?
