Ada Shipley is headed for an uncertain future. When her father answers an advertisement for a mail order bride, promising her to a gentleman she's never met, she finds herself on a train west to California. Bart Callan has always found pleasure in his horses and his work running the livery in Poppy Valley. It had never crossed his mind to think about marriage. When Ada finds herself alone at the train station with her mail order husband-to-be nowhere in sight, Bart offers her a ride to Poppy Valley to spend time with the only person she knows in California, her cousin Amelia. While Ada makes attempts to track down her wayward betrothed, Bart finds himself drawn to the sheltered farm girl from Indiana. But when she finds out the truth about why her fiance failed to meet her at the station, she flees Poppy Valley in shame. It's time for Bart to tell Ada how he feels, but first, they'll have to weather some dangerous obstacles.
