Dido is the illegitimate mixed race daughter of a Royal Navy admiral in the 18th Century, who is brought as a child to be raised in the aristocratic home of her great-uncle and his wife. Her heritage leaves her an outsider – too high in rank to eat with the servants but too low to eat with the family, and she is left on the sidelines as her cousin Elizabeth seeks suitors for marriage. When she meets an idealistic young vicar’s son, she is drawn to his passion for changing society, and questions her own place within it even more.
