The premise of a young woman going to America to be a type of mail order bride to an older man and he dies right after their wedding, leaving her a widow and needing to live as a sort of servant in his grown-up son's house while they slowly fall in love felt like a type of americana historical I'd be interested in seeing how it would develop.
Sadly for me, the story didn't explore the emotional aspect properly nor did it present fleshed out characters I could be invested in seeing finding happiness. However, the biggest issue was the writing, not always consistent and slightly choppy in how the scenes would move one to the other.
