Spring 1819 on the Devonshire coast. Follow the story of an ailing widow and mother left to raise four daughters without financial stability. Sarah Summers convinces her three sisters to open their home on the sea to make money and be able to stay together. They are surprised to discover that instead of totally entertaining the sick and the elderly they are instead hosting eligible gentlemen.

Viola Summers, another of the sisters, wears a veil to conceal the scar on her face. She does agree to read to some of the invalids, albeit reluctantly, feeling that their failing sight will be another way to keep her scarred face from them.

Watch the Summers sisters as their friendships and loyalty bloom and grow along with the bloom of new loves.
