Without her consent, Rose Charleston’s life has been planned for her. Marrying a man almost double her age doesn’t sit well with her. Being told two weeks before the event makes things even worse.
Instead of waiting around for the inevitable, she steals out in the middle of the night to answer an advertisement for domestic help in another state. Little did she know what she was letting herself in for.
After his wife’s death, Preacher Matthew Barnabas is left to care for their two small children. When Rose turns up unannounced, after answering an advertisement he knows nothing about, his life is turned upside down. The preacher will accept Rose into his life because he has no choice, but will he ever let her into his heart?
