“Do you, Anna Olsen, take Edward Parker to be your lawfully wedded husband?”

Can two people who are opposites and strangers make a marriage work?¬†Anna Olsen knows it’s time to leave her sister’s increasingly crowded house and start a life of her own. Following her sisters’ examples, she becomes a mail-order bride, and after a short correspondence with clock maker and jeweler Edward Parker, she moves to Denver to become his wife.
