Rowena, daughter of the village doctor, finds herself nursing an injured Marquis after a carriage accident. As she is the oldest of two sisters and one brother, all of them of a rather strange beauty considering their humble
origin, she must take her dead mom's place as head of the family and she feels responsible of all her siblings' future. If not the prettiest of the doctor's daughters, Rowena has a unique beauty, more spiritual and soft. When the Marquis is good enough to leave the doctor's house, he confesses his love to her, and promises all what she always dreamed. All, but one thing: a wedding ring."
