But upon her arrival, Audrey is welcomed into a home, unlike the one she expected. And the nice Christian man she thought she was writing to…is a work of fiction.
Meanwhile, Matt Bannister finds trouble in Branson, Oregon as a member of the Dielschneider family dedicates himself to taking Bannister’s fifteen-year-old niece as his wife and—on his quest to find her—crosses ethical lines and becomes the most wanted man in town.
Join US Marshal Matt Bannister as he attempts to juggle a mail-order bride’s reigning cry for help, a family reunion, and one man’s haunting presence.
