Ramona has always wanted to perform on Broadway, but when her mother moves to Austin to re-marry after her father’s death, she is left stranded in New York, homeless and alone.

When Ramona discovers the Mail Order Bride service, she sees it as her chance to go to Austin and find her mother. She arrives in Austin and it soon becomes apparent that she has other things on her mind than getting married.
When tragedy strikes, Michael is there to pick up the pieces, and Ramona’s finds her heart in jeopardy. Will she fall for the man she once overlooked? Can they find happiness together after all?
