Marty Lanegan is a boot boy in York's Station Hotel. Henrietta Ibbetson is the rebellious daughter of a prominent landowner. When they meet Etta falls instantly for Marty's charm and looks, but she soon finds out that theirs is far from a match made in heaven. The young couple strive to stay together as their love is threatened from all sided. Etta's father disowns her and Marty's family is not delighted with his choice. Etta cannot cook, clean or make herself useful in any way, and is finding life hard in the slums of Edwardian York. But despite this Etta is content, Marty is ambitious and they are madly in love. Is this enough to sustain them as they raise a family and will the onslaught of the Great War tear them and their love apart.
