troublesome child. Taking a chance, she becomes a mail order bride,
hoping to find love in the untamed Old West.
Rancher Otto Morris is not expecting that Millie could not ride a horse. And she has a limp.
Millie, on the other hand, is not expecting to live in such close proximity to Otto’s ranch hands.

But Millie now has to learn to ride horses, fix fences, grow food and defend cattle from predators and thieves.
Millie is determined to prove that she has what it takes to be a rancher’s wife.
Otto tries to adapt things around the ranch to suit Millie’s needs and subconsciously becomes overprotective of Millie, slipping into a thinking that she is too weak to deal with the ranch’s backbreaking work.
Can Millie convince herself and Otto that she is suited for frontier life? And how can Otto learn to let go and yet embrace what he truly loves?
