Rieke should be happy. Her family is prosperous, and Willem, the man she loves, wants to marry her and emigrate to America with her. But in 1848 Germany, she doesn't determine her own happiness, and her mother favors a different candidate for marriage. Of course, she too has her daughter's happiness on her mind since Willem is not the heir of his farm, and his chances to support a family are slim.
But the lovers don't give up easily. Rieke manages to convince her mother to grant them a period of grace. Willem, who always wanted to leave, sets out to become financially independent, but gets involved in the German Revolution instead. While he's away, Rieke looks for an affordable but fruitful farm and discovers her late father's secrets. Will the two have to emigrate to America after all?
