Priscilla White has applied to serve the Lord and save the lost people in India where there are established missions. She also wants to leave the country so as to escape the questions people will ask her about why she can't marry or have children. She never considered being a missionary to the Indians in the west,like Dr. Eli Ernest, who is visiting the community to raise funds for the mission he wants to build in Oregon Territory to serve the Nez Perce Indians. Then the Mission board sends Priscilla notice of its policy change. Only married people will now be considered for the mission field. This new policy affects Pricilla, as well as Dr. Ernest. Both reluctantly decide to become man and wife,in name only, so they can fulfill their callings.

The couple's dangerous journey to Oregon country in 1836 is based on the journey of Marcus and Narcissa Whitman,who experienced many hardships, including possibly the stirrings in own their hearts for each other. Historical romance at its best!
