Despite her reserved manner, Dinah finds an unlikely ally in the witty Charles Talbot, who agrees to help her pursue her dreams while easing herself into society. With their shared interests and penchant for honesty, the two soon form a comfortable friendship.
Both cynical and unromantic, each believes that they are incapable of forming a lasting attachment. But as the season wears on, the sceptical pair begin to wonder whether they are mistaken…
