It is the early Sixties. The parents of law student, Peach Gatehouse, are both doctors and her brother is a medical student. She is in love with Henry but cannot contemplate life as a doctor's wife. Stifled by the world of medicine from which she feels unable to escape, Peach is attempting to make her own way in the world. She is also learning to come to terms with the new world order and the changing values of her generation. Through her experiences and friendships she gradually learns to define her own needs and values and is confident about the decision she eventually makes about her future.
