Fliss, the squire's eldest daughter, lives for her family, who depend on her to sort out their problems. Her life changes when Sir James Singleton asks her and her sister Melissa to visit his aunt in Bath. Fliss meets many new people there, including Alice Tryon, with whom her brother Richard is in love, and Alice's uncle, Lord Nick Bonsor, a notorious rake and Sir James's friend.
Fliss begins to see James differently but just as it seems as if she might find happiness, her mother dies and she and Melissa return home. But Melissa's stay in Bath has been eventful too, and her misbehaviour not only compels Fliss to visit London in search of a solution, but also threatens to drive a wedge between Fliss and James.
