Rosemary Starr, an orphan of twenty-five, has spent her whole life waiting hand and foot on her grandmother and aunt, finding her only solace in flighty dreams of romance and escape. Her only friend is Alden Marsh, the thirty year old owner of a floundering family vineyard and part-time school teacher who himself dreams of escape. He meets discreetly with Rosemary once a week and lends her romantic literature, such as Jane Eyre and the poetry of Rossetti, which she reads secretly by candlelight.
