One man wants her, but the one she wants doesn’t seem to want her.
Laura Duffle has come to Stones Creek, with her two young sons, hoping to find love again. She’s spent the last five years at Sanctuary Place Mission for Women after the death of her husband. She needs to set up her laundry business but doesn’t know where to start.
Hank Johnson, the town barber, is flattered by and attracted to the lovely widow who comes seeking his advice. He hasn’t been looking for a wife, but maybe he’ll begin with Laura.
Ranch foreman, Red Dickerson, would like a wife. He hopes to find one among the Ladies of Sanctuary House. He sets his sights on Laura.
Hank sets her heart on fire, but is he only interested in helping her get her business off the ground?
Red is solid and dependable, but is this enough to base her future on? Should Laura settle for safety and security for herself and her boys? Will she hold out for love? Or will she just chuck both of them into the washtub and rinse the men from her life altogether?
