IIn the Spring of 1881, indigent seamstress Ginny Dahlke arrives in Parisville, Michigan - the state's earliest Polish American settlement.

Deemed charmless and awkward by her mean-spirited sister-in-law, Ginny disparages her chance of securing love.

But sought-after widowed farmer Peter Nickles is enamored by Ginny's perseverance, her pioneer spirit, and her acceptance of indigenous peoples.
