Sullen Lord Quentin Somerville finds himself married to the decidedly plain Jane Wentworth after an attempt to woe her step-sister goes awry. After a disastrous wedding night, he banishes her to his ramshackle estate in the country. Jane, however, thrives in the familiar surroundings and befriends the neglected townfolks, setting out to improve everyone's situation. As Quentin discovers Jane's hidden talents, her true beauty becomes apparent to him, and he finds himself falling in love with his wife.
