When her father has a crisis of faith and leave his position as a cleric in scenic southern England, Margaret and her tempestuous mother are moved to England's industrial north, where she must somehow find a way to survive. Her progess is hindered by the presence of Mr. Thornton, a factory owner who seeks to become a "gentleman" in order to win Margaret's affections and his mother, a money-grubbing cow who sees Margaret as a penniless hindrace to her son's glarious career. But in the end, Margaret's future becomes a great deal less bleak when an unexpected bank account arrives and she can finally realize her dreams.
