Oregon seems like a perfect place for their future, yet the wagon trains won't take single women along. For Andy Riley, life has held nothing but sorrow, disappointment, and pain. When he awakens in a strange bed after a merciless beating, he realizes his options are few - pay what he owes with cash or his life. An arranged marriage between Hope and Andy seem to make sense - Andy's debts can be settled and Hope will find a new chance at life.
