|Summary, etc.:|| The tender tale of a woman without choices who risks everything for one last chance at happiness. RANCHER SEEKING WIFE, for Kate Whittington, the modest words in a newspaper ad are the answer to her desperate prayers. Daughter of a dockside harlot and raised in a bleak orphanage, she has no prospects in the unforgiving Maine village of her birth. Correspondence from the lonely Texas widower looking for a mail order bride sparks tempting dreams of a house, a family and a future in a land filled with possibilities. Kate arrives at the magnificent Lone Star Ranch eager to meet her new husband. Instead she is greeted by the news that Reed Benton has been wounded during a raid on a Comanche village and has returned with a prisoner, a wild-looking boy who may be his long lost son. Even more shattering, however, is the fact that Reed has never heard of Kate, never wrote the letters that charmed her soul. Reed Benton doesn't want a wife.
