On her 18th birthday in April 1557, Rose Bingley is given a diary by her mother. In it, she records her feelings, thoughts, and the great love she bears for her childhood sweetheart Oliver Moore, whom she secretly plans to marry.
When her uncle informs Rose that she is to wed the wealthy Lord Richard Coulby, she is horrified and heartbroken. Only when she discovers that her family name and fortune depend on it, does she agree to marry this stranger, who is 20 years her senior and has some very unusual views on how to conduct a marriage.
In Norfolk, England, during the reign of "Bloody Queen Mary", Rose embarks on her first few months of marriage and chronicles her story of love, longing, betrayal, danger, and sexual awakening in this, her diary.
