Leah plays matchmaker, but the initial letters between Charlotte and Frank are quite intense. Frank is the owner of the Billings, Montana, newspaper, and they have a similar love for writing.
Charlotte had strong doubts about Frank's character due to his biting and cutting remarks about her brother. But, she takes a chance and moves out West. Can Frank accept being with a caring but also strong woman? Will his grumpy and argumentative traits make it impossible for him to be in a loving relationship? Is Charlotte able to get past his cantankerous persona and see his true heart?
