Soon after, she discovers that she’s pregnant and must act quickly in deciding what to do next. Consulting with Marius’ parents, Fanny reluctantly accepts the advances of a much older and wealthier man in order to avoid the scorn of the community, but is soon torn when an old flame turns up declaring his love.
In Victorian England, a headstrong woman becomes romantically involved with three different men whilst she tries to run a successful farm.
