Her headstrong husband, William, shocks her when he announces his plans to emigrate to America. Despite her opposition, she follows him across the ocean, and after an unhappy time in the industrial town of Minneapolis, they make a claim on prairie land in Dakota. Life is harsh, and many challenges have to be faced, as their claim becomes the nucleus of a small township called Charity. This is the story of the rise and fall of Charity and the rich tapestry of people who live in or visit it. Most of all, it is the story of one womans determination to overcome a succession of crises and challenges with a heartwarming mixture of humour, faith, stoicism and love.
