“Merill Krause has been taking care of her father and brother for years. She has been content with the idea that she will be a spinster but when a handsome nephew of the local furniture maker comes to town they are instantly attracted to each other. Scandal soon comes to Minnesota and the man that holds her affection is the center of all the talk.
Rurik Jorgenson has come to Minnesota to assist his Uncle in his custom made furniture shop. He left behind the woman his father arranged for him to marry, Svea. He knew that he never loved Svea more than like a sister, so when she broke off their engagement he was relieved. But a few months later she shows up and tells Rurik that they are still engaged and he must marry her because she is pregnant. This causes quite a scandal. Rurik doesn’t understand how she can be pregnant when he never had relations with any woman.
