An orphaned young woman leaves Odessa , solicited as a mail –order bride, for America and a better life . Her destination is a sod house on the South Dakota prairie, her husband, a Jewish Orthodox farmer with two teenage sons. A cold winter and hard work await her, but, by the end of the year, there is hope and a new beginning. A different “little house on the prairie” story inspired by a little-known Jewish homesteading movement in the 1880s on the American west.
