«Love!--A word by superstition thought a God; by use turned to an humour; by self-will made a flattering madness.» — Alexander and Campaspe.
Lady Juliana, the indulged and coddled seventeen («And a half, papa») year old daughter of the Earl of Cortland, is betrothed by her father to a wealthy old Duke who can give her every luxury. She instead runs away and marries her very handsome but penniless lover. Very soon, they are forced to travel to Scotland to live with his quirky family in a rundown «castle» in the barren wilderness. Can this marriage survive?(Summary by P.Cunningham)
