"Eighteen-year-old Laurel Millard is expected to stay home and take care of her mother, but she dreams of starting her own family. While operating a silk loom at the Cotton States and International Exposition, she meets Langdon Rochester, whose parents have given him an ultimatum to settle down or lose his inheritance. Believing that the besotted Laurel will overlook his continued bachelor behavior, Langdon decides to woo her. Meanwhile, Willie Sharp encounters Laurel while working as a security guard at the expo. As his feelings for her deepen, Willie wonders if he can convince Laurel that, despite having little money, he is the one who can give her a better life"--Back cover.
