After being jilted, the society miss travels a thousand miles to marry a man she´s never met whose romantic letters won her heart.

Impressed by Victoria, he holds off on revealing the true author of the letters she received and sets a date for their marriage. Love isn´t part of the bargain, as far as he´s concerned. But love is what Victoria has come this far to find. When the truth finally comes out, it will take more than a miracle to deliver a happily-ever-after. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Liisa Ivary.
