In 1912, two years after a tornado left
many children homeless, the town of Daisy, Oklahoma, needs help with its
orphanage. Enter Rena Jewel, 38 years old and still single, who longs
to do something important with her life. A lover of flowers, Rena
believes the letter from Daisy to be a sign from the Lord, and she
promises to help. Sheriff Gene Wyatt is a widowed father struggling to
control 23 unruly orphans—and to keep his own two boys from burning down
the town. So when he receives word that help is on the way, Gene
rejoices. Until he meets Rena, that is—a genteel and far too pretty
woman whom he assumes is not up to the challenge. And after meeting the
children, Rena begins to agree with him! At her wits’ end, she helps the
children plant a garden and slowly earns their respect and obedience.
The new orphanage director arrives just as the garden begins to bloom,
and Rena must decide whether she can leave the town, the children—and
the man—she’s come to love.
