Each of Mary's sisters is settled in her own way. Happily married Jane is the mother of many children. Elizabeth has to cope with an unwelcome social pre-eminence she has not envisioned. Lydia is still entranced by military officers; and Kitty is one of the stars of London's fashionable salons. Events transpire that free Mary from her family obligations and dangle the allurements of independence before her hungry gaze. She resolves to publish a book about the plight of England's poor, but her investigations lead her into mortal danger.
