When Rose Dennis begins her first job at B & B Mercantile in the winter of 1906, she befriends a handsome widower, Owen Emerson, his baby, Hope, and a dashing man named Richard Dobbs. Both men recently moved to Shawnee in Oklahoma Territory, and she is drawn to each of them. Circumstances change and Rose takes care of Hope full time. She soon loves the little baby, but she hesitates to have any feelings for Owen because he seems to be in deep mourning. Richard, on the other hand, is accommodating in every way and seems almost too good to be true. Which man loves her? Which man will only betray her? Her good friends, Ada and Gwen, try to help her make this important decision, but Rose knows only she can be the one to resolve her dilemma. With which man should she put all of her hopes and dreams?
