A young girl from a loving but impoverished family is sent to live with her wealthy aunts. Though treated as a social inferior by most of the family, she develops skills as a horsewoman and a writer. Growing up to be a beautiful woman she has many admirers, but when her kindly cousin is courted by a gold-digger, she realises she loves him.
