Geraldine Jordan, accustomed to living with her disability, learns the meaning of rejection early. To acquire a desirable suitor like Alistair McKenna -- the man of her lifelong dreams -- is clearly slim to none.
When a treasured aunt arranges marriage to esteemed Chicago banker in search of a wife and mother for his young ward, Geraldine finds hope. What does it matter it's a business proposition? A wedding is a wedding -- even if it doesn't include Alistair.
At her aunt's sudden passing, Geraldine finds herself under the care of her disgruntled Uncle Henry, who not only disapproves the business proposition; he's convinced she's unsuitable for any man. Blocking the betrothal, he hires Geraldine out as a servant to a patronizing family in desperate need of a governess.
Can Geraldine defy her uncle when she discovers her prospective groom is none other than her life-long love, Alistair McKenna?
