Love leads them to a lifetime of commitment where the dreams they have held onto for so long start to come true.

Popular and eligible, Logan De Witt must convince the women in town that he is engaged to be married. A quiet, simple ceremony is what he has in mind for his wedding day, but when the date and time of his bride’s arrival is published in the newspaper, the whole town joins in the celebration proving to Logan and his new wife their sincere friendship and support. Added to the excitement of Logan’s marriage is the question of what the congregation should do with the unexpected donation of an orchard.

Karen Millerson is counting the days until her long-distance engagement comes to an end and she may travel to Oswell City to marry Logan. More than anything, she wants to share in his life as a help and support, but keeping a house and finding her place in the community requires much more work than she ever expected.

Learn, laugh, and love with Karen and Logan as they start a new marriage and work together ministering to the citizens of their small town.

“Tell us about your engagement ring, Miss Millerson.” Blanche pointed to Karen’s hand.

“It’s pretty. Who is the groom?” Jane asked.

The other members in the party, lagging after the efforts of memorization, snapped to full attention.

“His name is Logan, and he lives in Iowa.” Karen removed the ring from her finger and passed it around the gathering.

Some of the girls tried it on. Others held it in the sunlight, enjoying the sparkle.

“When is your wedding?” Gladys passed the ring to a friend.

 “After Christmas, when the fall term is finished.”

“You mean we’ll have a different teacher for the spring semester?” Stella asked.

“I’m afraid so.” Karen didn’t want to quit teaching. She wanted a life with Logan and her teaching career. Many restless nights had passed in which Karen lay awake while her mind stretched the circumstance, twisting it into various scenarios. But the outcome remained the same. Married women were not allowed to teach. She knew that when she’d accepted Logan’s proposal. The time had come to make her choice.

“Where are you getting married?” Mabel asked.

“In a little town in Iowa called Oswell City. It’s where Logan lives.”

“Will we get to meet him?” Annie handed the ring back to Karen.

“Most likely. He plans to visit me here in the city for a week in August. In fact, I think he will be here during our exhibition.” Pleasure warmed Karen’s face. She could show Logan the best of her efforts in the form of talented young ladies.

Smiles broke out on the faces of many in the group. Karen never could have predicted it, but the idea of performing for her fiancé provided the girls with the extra motivation they needed to pull through the audition.
