A New Life
It is the early 1900s. Marianne is raped and forced out of her house by her aunt and uncle who are raising her. Put on a train, she is bound for Iowa in response to a farmer's ad looking for a wife. What will she find in Iowa? A life worse than what she left behind? More cruelty and abuse? She does not expect to find acceptance, nor does she expect to encounter murder. And the last thing on her mind is to find the love of a husband-or the love of God! Follow Marianne's journey as she makes a new life for herself in an environment far different from that in which she was raised. At the same time, follow the growth and development of the unexpected new life growing within her.
