As Ever Yours
William Rappleye, reared in the untamed territory of Wyoming, is a hard-working country farmer. Firm in his faith, he answers the call to serve a mission in the eastern United States. He’s unaccustomed to city life, but that doesn’t stop him from preaching the gospel—no matter the obstacles thrown in his path.
Carrie Drew, reared in Burlington, Vermont, helps her parents run a boarding house. She is kind to everyone, but has an especially soft spot for the new missionary, Elder Rappleye.
After He finishes serving his two year mission, in 1913, William returns to Wyoming, but cannot forget the enchanting Carrie Drew he met in Vermont. Though they hadn’t had a romantic relationship, he feels a kinship to her, and decides to pursue it. Through a letter, William proposes marriage to Carrie, and she accepts. And their journey together begins.
