Fun story!!
She agrees to marry a man heading to his ranch in Cali so her family can go to Cali as well. Irish immigrants are not welcome in Pittsburgh, and they need a way to leave. Marriage is that way. Of course, they fall in love along the way, but neither are very nice to the other, so naturally, they do not know that they both love each other.
