In the second tale, a young Emile, lives with her widowed father who has grand ideas who she should see and who she should marry.
The third story is about a young wife Caroline, who finds out that he young husband has been killed in the war, so as a widow what should she now do, and when the idea of joining a wagon train to California comes up, she is thwarted by a gentleman she does not like or does she.
