Oxford student Verdant Green and his sisters travel to spend their summer at Honeywood Hall in Northumbria, where our hero is captivated by the young daughter of the house, the vivacious and charming Miss Patty: accomplished horsewoman, sketcher and water-colourist. A warm regard springs up between the two, and Verdant dares to hope that something more than friendship may result. But when Patty's cousin, the handsome and confident Frank Delaval, arrives to stay, Verdant suspects he has a rival for Miss Patty's affections. Will he gracefully concede defeat - or end up married and done for?
