Folks in Dead Dog, Oklahoma, have never forgiven Cora Briggs for ending her youthful marriage in disgrace. The pert, pretty 29-year-old divorcee has managed to ignore the snubs and snide remarks of the past eight years, the whispers that she is a fallen, wanton woman. She's even adjusted to her lonely lifestyle - and the fact that no respectable gentleman will ever call on her again. Then handsome, young Jedwin Sparrow, one of the town's most eligible bachelors, arrives at her doorstep. But Cora is outraged at Jedwin's proposition: he'll spruce up Cora's neglected cottage if he can sow a few wild oats with the "notorious" Mrs. Briggs. Then Cora decides to make Jedwin a proposition of her own - one that will cause a fury in the town - and cause Cora to question her own heart.
