Now, she has to try to convince Jeb, her fiancé's brother, that the children will do best left with her.

During the months Jeb is working on the farm, he gets to know his niece and nephew, and starts thinking of how he can take them with him. But the children have become attached to Beth who wants to raise the children herself.
And, what would be the best for the 2 children? How would their needs best be served?
