A handsome widower with two small kids. A beautiful orphan with three siblings. Two hundred acres to farm between them.
Olivia Cooper has had a crush on Milo Brewster for most of her life. When he marries and then his wife dies leaving him with two small children, she knows he will never be the same. But then tragedy strikes her own family when her parents are suddenly killed in a freak accident. Now she has one hundred and twenty acres to farm and three kids to raise.
Milo Brewster is no stranger to tragedy or raising children all alone, so he makes one small suggestion to Olivia Cooper on how to get hired hands to work her farm. Before he knows it, she's hired forty of them and the rest of the town is struggling to work their own land. Then she shocks everyone by entering the lottery with the hopes of marrying an experienced farm hand.
What starts as the seed of love on Lottery Day sprouts, wilts, and sprouts again as two people in love struggle to find their way through tragedy and to each other.
