Early in the 19th century Lizzie is traumatised by the loss of her
entire family in a devastating house fire. Initially taken in and
cared for by Dorothea Fothergill, an elderly neighbour, she is
later dispatched from her native Herefordshire to an employer in
Yorkshire, leaving behind everything she knows and loves. Keeping
house for Mr Fothergill, Lizzie's life is comfortable but
unrewarding. She overhears Mr Fothergill explaining to one of the
village men, Reuben Webster, that he has received an inheritance of
a cottage and flock of sheep, on condition that he takes a wife.
Lizzie realises dreams of her own home and family could come true
if she was Reuben's wife. She sets out to be seductive and attract
his attention but her life turns out to be one of mishap and
trauma, putting not only her happiness but also her life at risk.
Can Lizzie triumph over adversity and find happiness and
