Will her dreams lead her away from all she's ever known?             
Nineteen-year-old Rebecca Baard has experienced more than her share of sorrow. And though she dreams of finding love, she's afraid to open her heart. Besides, no man has ever shown enough interest in her to come courting. Rebecca's friends set out to remedy the situation, concocting social events to attract all the eligible bachelors in town and advising her in the use of feminine wiles.
Rebecca also hopes to open a soda shop in Blessing, so she travels to Bismarck to learn how to operate one. Awed by the big city and enamored by the attention she receives from a sophisticated and charming young man, she begins to question her long-held ambitions. What would it take for her to call a new place "home"?
