Changes are afoot in Derbyshire, Engand, where four families - all possessed of eligible young gentlemen and ladies - find themselves embroiled in romance and intrigue during a time of optimism. Fortune has recently smiled on these somewhat neglected estates, families with respectable histories that endured hard times in the late 18th century, now, in the mid-19th, the families Asquith, Cavendish, Ponsonby, and York have coincidentally come into new sources of income and are itnent on improving their country estates and restoring their failing reputations. The inflow of funds is modest, but there is a new optimism abroad in South Derbyshire!
The envy of this part of the county is Alderley Hall where Margaret, Dowager Countess Fairchild, and her sister-in-law, Ethel, reside with a joint income well in excess of £20,000 pa. Only their lonliness living on such a sprawling estate dampens the generous hearts of the two widowed and childless ladies.
Then, to their delight, they welcome new occupants: the Dowager's dashing nephew Charles, and lovely niece Elizabeth, sadly not far removed from tragedy. Their parents, returning from holiday in the south of France, perished crossing the Channel in suddenly ill weather. The death of Margaret's brother-in-law and his lady has brought Charles and Elizabeth permanently to the Fairchild residence far from their childhood estate in Yorkshire. Of course, the irrepressible Fairchild sisters, a year now removed from the terrible accident, know precisely what is the best medicine for a sad heart: romance! And the surrounding hills are awash in prime matchmaking material. The nearby Derbyshire families all have marriageable children, and the Fairchild ladies have designs!
