Rose, her uncle, and her friend, come home from a two year trip to see the world. Now she is twenty one years old, and old enough to marry. One of her young boy cousins reveals her family's "plot" on having her marry one of her seven cousins, to keep her fortune within the Campbell family. Rose still wants to test out having a partying life style and practice a career in philanthropy first. Charlie assumes he can have her, just from being the oldest and liking her when he was younger. He never marries her, however, and it may not be surprising whom she finally does fall in love with...

Rose's cousin Charlie drinks, but it is mentioned slightly and put in a negative light.
