In 1950s London, a career girl decides it's high time she snared herself a husband Professional dog photographer Louisa Datchett is indiscriminately fond of men. And they take shocking advantage of her good nature when they need their problems listened to, socks washed, prescriptions filled, or employment found. But by the age of thirty, Louisa is tired of constantly being dispatched to the scene of some masculine disaster. It's all well and good to be an independent woman—and certainly better than a "timid Victorian wife"—but the time has come for her to marry, and marry well. With the admirable discipline and dedication she's always displayed in any endeavor involving men, Louisa sets out on her own romantic quest.
