With the American Civil War over, the German Mueller family crossed the ocean hoping to leave behind a scandal caused by their daughter Erica. When the golden haired Erica finds Jake seemingly lifeless on the dirt, she nurtures Jake back to health. The nurse and the patient fall in love. However, Jake has to overcome her strict parents' objection to a non-German son-in-law and deal with some generic secret.

The story line focuses on the relationship and growing love between the former Confederate officer who has his traumas to deal with and the newly arrived “disgraced German lass who feels she is unworthy of the man she loves.
