Tired of being alone, Marva Obermeier places a very business-like personal advertisement in an 1891 Wisconsin newspaper. She signs her ad Lonely in Longtree, as that best describes her. She is pleased when Lucky in Lakeland replies and thus begins a two-year correspondence.

Monte Van Huysen enjoys communicating with Lonely in Longtree and would like to know her better, but his past makes him hesitant to be completely honest with her.

When mistaken identity and misunderstanding tie their relationship in knots, can love unravel the truth and unite their hearts? Will God deliver Marva from being loney in Longtree?

Very enjoyable book of Christian historical fiction.
