Young Mary feels like a prisoner in the New York apartments of her step-father John Bussard but everything changes when her heartless guardian dies in an accident. Mary is left a fortune but only if she can fulfill her step-father's will by remaining unmarried and living with his brother Amos' family for a year. Of course if Mary refuses or is unable to do so the fortune instead goes to Amos and he has been waiting years for a chance at his brother's money. Amos has his plans to get the money and when handsome bachelor James Winthrop shows up Mary might really be in trouble.
