It is 1823. Elinor Bratton is young, beautiful, privileged, and pregnant. Forced into an arranged marriage with a man she barely knows, she begins a new life in a time when a woman has no voice, no rights, no say in anything. Rebellious, she declares her intention to make her father a stranger and her man's life miserable. Full of life's twists and turns, we watch her grow into a strong new woman.
