Katie McKenzie longs to further her education in Omaha, but when she returns for a visit to the prairie, she finds her feelings for Daniel Wentworth remain. Pushing aside her reservations, Katie extends her visit as she tries to help a young woman grieving over a family member's death. Determined to avoid that schoolgirl crush she had on Mr. Wentworth before she left, Katie pours herself into helping sixteen-year-old Mary Frances resurrect her love for singing. But as Daniel comes calling with an invitation for Katie to remain on the prairie, she wonders if her gift of hospitality and help might be a second chance at love.
