Steven needs a mother for his five children. Emily wants a family and a home of her own. So their marriage seems like a good arrangement for them both. But when Emily sets out with Steven for east Texas, she certainly never planned on her home being a battlefield, as Steven fights to earn his own children’s love and acceptance. The marriage brings a few surprises to Steven, too. Can these two lonely hearts bridge their differences and reach out to the other? Or will they always be married in name only?
