Miss Dorcas Minster waas penniless and without prospects. She had no choice but to acept a position as governess in Cockermouth, a remote town in the English Lake District.
Resolved to make the best of her bleak future, Dorcas was not surprised when the stage-coach she was travelling in was waylaid by an accident. She and her fellow passengers were forced to seek refuge in a nearby inn. So much did she enjoy the assorted company, the she found herself wishing to be stranded forever.
One passenger in particular, the dashing Colonel, Sir Richard Severall, was of special interest to Dorcas. And it seemed as if she was of special interest to him. Date had delivered her into the hands of love. If only she could be certain Sir Richard returned her affection.
