"The year is 1909, and Temperance O'Neil is a woman ahead
of her times. A women's rights activist devoted to helping
single mothers on the streets of New York City, Temperance
is, at 29, happily married to her work - which she funds
with a substantial inheritance. Unfortunately, her new
stepfather feels very differently on the subject and, due
to laws that Temperance finds infuriatingly outdated, he
controls all of her money. Angus McCairn insists she quit
her career and, as a respectable unmarried daughter
should, live in his house in Edinburgh. With no other
choice, Temperance heads for Scotland with one mission -
to drive Angus crazy. Soon, an exasperated Angus makes her
a most unlikely offer: to pose as housekeeper to Angus'
nephew, James, in a secret attempt to find him a wife. If -
and only if - she succeeds in matchmaking, she will be
allowed to return to New York."
