When Lord Nicholas Thornton returns home after the war, he is content to shut himself off from the world. But his solitude doesn't last long. The local vicar's daughter, Christina Wakelin, climbs his tree to rescue a cat and falls right into his arms! Nicholas's hope of quiet seclusion is further dashed when he is given his late brother's baby to raise. Enlisting Miss Wakelin's aid in his search for a nanny, he soon finds himself on the receiving end of her efforts to share God's love with him. And before long, he becomes the object of her love - but one great barrier impedes their love: He is a nobleman and she is a commoner. How can God work a miracle when society is set against them?
