In the wake of Bird Raymond's death, for which Helene is blamed, the shipwreck survivor attempts to adjust to life as a pastor's wife. But negotiating devious housekeeper Dorothy's wicked schemes grows increasingly tricky when Helene is blamed for the deteriorating health of Mother Mathilde.

Meanwhile, the newlywed hopes to bring cheer to Edmund in the shape of an adopted dog named Susan, although the gift doesn't go down as well as she may have hoped and Susan soon finds herself on the wrong end of the pastor's fury. Plus, kitchen hands Annie and Tom keep Helene's fellow shipwreck survivor Geoff housed in the cupboard, and he proves to be a handy pair of eyes and ears around the house.
