Joshua makes a decision to take in Payton & her two young children after her husband dies. He can see they need his help. He doesn't realize just how much he'll come to need them.
Payton is young, widowed and the mother of two small children. She can't survive on her own, miles away from her family. She can't go home either so she accepts Joshua's marriage proposal. 
They both agree to a marriage in name alone but when things don't go as smoothly as planned Payton decides its time to go back home. Can Joshua convince her to stay & try to make this a REAL marriage? Only God knows.

This is an excellent first work!  Lots of detail.  It is sad, but I am anxious to see what happens next.
