In this Jane Austen-style sweet romance, a foundling girl, Emma Carrington, was raised and sent to work as a servant girl for The Countess of Holmeshire. The widowed and unconventional Countess chose her as her companion and sent her off for finishing. She was dragged along into snobbish, aristocratic Victorian society where she received a cold reception at tea and dinners - if she was allowed to accompany her mistress at all.
