When socialite Emma Crowell stops the carriage on the way to Portland to 'exercise' her fussy poodle, she does not expect to become stranded in the woods in decidedly unsuitable attire. The pair of men who find her decide to take her back to their cave, where they've hidden sheep they rustled from a nearby rancher. The rancher turns out to be Peter Lowery, and he arrives, furious, to retrieve his property. But when he discovers Emma, he does the Christian thing and brings her, her dog, and the thieves back to his cabin. Peter may have to shelter the motley group, but he expects them to earn their keep until he can take them to Bountiful, the nearest town. Emma suddenly finds herself in charge of the house and the care of Peter's imaginative young son Robby. She's surprised to find that she enjoys the challenges of life at the cabin, and feels drawn to Peter. But though willing to learn, no matter how she tries, she can never seem to live up to expectations. As she seeks God's guidance, she faces the picture of womanhood shown by the lady in the 31st chapter of Proverbs. Between that picture and the one of Peter's late wife, Emma must decide who she has been, who she is, and who she really wants to be. What is to be her worth as a woman? What is to be her legacy?
