Ingebor Bullivant, the put-upon daughter of the Bishop of Redchester, suddenly rebels and takes a week's tour to Lucerne. Constantly in the company of a ponderous German pastor, she is put into a quandary when he proposes marriage. Faced with her father's wrath on her return, she accepts Herr Dremmel with simple relief. But as a pastor's wife in East Prussia, she finds she merely exchanged one set of rules for another.
