Young Molly Gibson's life is overturned when her previously doting father remarries, bringing with him a manipulative step-mother and a sophisticated but troubled step-sister.
Can Molly keep her head when she becomes the centre of attention in a community rife with gossip? She finds herself acting as a go-between in her step-sister's love affairs - and in doing so risks destroying her reputation and her own chance of love and happiness.
