Upstanding and respected, Dr. Sterling Graham has lived in Cottonwood, Iowa all his life. He's comfortable and proud of his standing in the community.
An ice storm puts them in the same livery stable over night. Neither knew the other was there. Now word spreads like wildfire through the town that, "Doc spent the night with a woman in the stable." Now Sterling's reputation is in ruins, Leah is condemned by those who don't even know her and in 1875 there is only one solution; they marry.
