“The River by Starlight,” set in Montana during the early 20th century, finds Annie Rushton moving to live on her brother’s Montana homestead after leaving her child with an ex-husband following her episodes of postpartum depression. Not planning to remarry, she encounters Adam Fielding. Together they buy out Annie’s brother and form a business and romantic partnership. Efforts to have a child prompt further depression, yet Annie still loves Adam. They persist in the face of difficulties.
