Minerva has taken over as head of her family, raising her brothers and sisters, taking care of the household, writing her father's sermons. She's turned out self-righteous. When her father embarks on a scheme to marry her off to get money to send her brothers to school, it appeals to her sense of self-sacrifice to be a martyer for her family. However, her prudish behavior doesn't appeal to the London crowd and they make plans to assault her and steal her virtue. Meanwhile, Minerva attracts the attentions of the older Lord Comfrey, who looks out for her. Despite the fact that she believes she doesn't like him, their relationship grows.

The story is OK but I found the main character, Minerva, too annoying to really like the book.
