Emma Delaney is mortified when her precocious daughter leaps into a stranger's arms and loudly proclaims that God has sent her new papa to their door. Emma's not looking for a new husbandm, and this angry stranger certainly wouldn't qualify if she were. Josiah Andrews is amused by the child's announcement, but he's here on business - looking for the man responsible for his brother's death. Marriage hasn't even appeared on the horizon of his plans for life. But Emma and Josiah find themselves drawn together by circumstances beyond their control. Can the hurt of the past and the confusion of the moment be overcome? Can either of them move beyond their own expectations to see the bigger picture God has planned?
