Willow wants to go to school, but is unable to in her own country and under her current circumstances. She learns of 'picture brides' - your picture is sent to a potential candidate and they determine if they want to accept you as their bride or not. Willow and her friend (also in a difficult circumstance) have both pursued this opportunity and been chosen, meaning they will be leaving their home countries for Hawaii, for a new life as married women with more possibilities.

The start of this book is so intriguing; reading about the culture of these two young women and their desire for more - to leave everything they know for the unknown. It is both exciting and scary. I am immediately drawn to their strength and drive; I am also a romantic and can't wait to see how the plot unravels.
