A short and sweet retelling of the beloved Cinderella story set on the Montana prairies.
Life on her brotherâ€™s ranch is lonely for Ellie Strickland. Edâ€™s ungracious manners and tight-fisted habits keep visitors away and his mother and sister close to home.
But when Cole Newcomb, son of the wealthiest rancher in the county, meets Ellie by chance, he is struck by an unexpected impulse to rescue her from her solitudeâ€”and Ellieâ€™s lonely summer is transformed.
When Cole asks her to go with him to the Fourth of July dance, Ellie is determined that nothing, from an old dress to Edâ€™s sour temper, will stand in her way. By the time the Fourth of July fireworks go off at midnight, will they herald only more heartache, or maybeâ€”just maybeâ€”a dream come true?
