Matt Breen lives in small town Wings, New Mexico, population 175. Well he doesn't actually live in town. He lives on a ranch outside of town. He's young, good looking and very shy around woman. His only experience being a one night drunken fling with the lovely Jada who works at the diner. However Matt wants a wife so he takes an ad out in the personals of the "Lonely Hearts Newsletter" and Annie Lane Responds.
Annie is a thirty-year-old librarian who lives in Oklahoma. Like Matt she likes to write long letters. She's kind of a dreamer and he's swept her off her feet with his letters. Things go all right when they first meet and a week later when he proposed by mail, she accepts.
However, there is one small hitch. Annie too has had only one experience at lovemaking and she too had had too much to drink, but she got pregnant. Nobody knows and she decides not to tell Matt. But five minutes before they are supposed to say their vows, she tells him. He is furious. He says the wedding is still on, but so is the divorce right after.
But this is a romance, you know things are going to come up peaches in the end. It's the journey us girls read these things for and let me tell you, Annie and Matt's journey is bumpy, very bumpy indeed, but it's one I know you'll enjoy reading about. I sure did.
