Eliza Cantrell is a mail-order bride who is robbed on her way to meet her intended. Axel isn't waiting for her when she does make it to town; after all she's a week early. Axel isn't there but his friend/co-business owner of a store is there. His dream is not to be a shopkeeper but to be a doctor. Eliza's dream is to run her own store or at least co-own with her future husband. So many dreams and so much going on that hasn't been revealed yet. Is Axle the man for Eliza and will any of their dreams come true?
I found the people in this book to be interesting, although the story itself seemed to move slow at times. It would go slow for quite awhile and then all of a sudden something dramatic would jump out at you. This is what kept me going. The storyline itself was something different, with a few twists and turns. I couldn't help it, I really liked both Eliza and Will.
