Maeve O'Donavan has arrived in Edinburgh from County Cork, trying to forget her unrequited love for the man who has since married her cousin. Shocked by the prejudice she encounters, Maeve finds life in a strange city difficult. When she loses her job as a maid, she is delighted to find a job as an assistant in the wardrobe department of the Queen's Theatre. She finds herself attracted to the brooding Harry Alpin, a theatre lighting man who harbours a desire to act. But will his prejudiced family ever be willing to accept an Irish girl as Harry's bride?
