Priscilla Peel is orphaned very young (with three younger sisters), and is taken in by her Aunt Rachel (she calls her Raby), who can barely afford to feed the girls but works hard to make it work since they are family. Teenage Priscilla, thanks to the efforts of her aunt and the local vicar, gets the opportunity to attend a well-respected womens' college in England. Priscilla quickly finds herself to be "a fish out of water" as she is introduced to other female students who come from very well-off families. Priscilla is blindsided by a world filled with cliques, pettiness, selfish desires, gossip and frivolity. Because her aunt worked so hard to give her the opportunity to have an advanced education ( that can lead her into a more comfortable life for her and her sisters), she feels the need to focus solely on her studies. The people she is able to befriend at school convince her that she needs to find a balance between work and play. Priscilla grows from a very serious, almost sad young girl into a more warm-hearted, open young woman, maturely deflecting all the gossip and schemes of petty girls.
