Joy Ashley lost her home under Cromwell, forcing her to become a maid. When King Charles regains the throne she hopes Ashley Hall will be restored. When her dream is shattered, she becomes the governess of Lord Noel Huntingdon's precocious daughter. The little tyrant rules the roost, but Joy transforms her from a petulant child to a happy hoyden and teaches Noel a few things about "Love and Joy".
