It's May 1905 and Elizabeth Bellamy returns home after attending finishing school in Germany. At 17, she is attractive and has a keen mind with a variety of interests whether it be literature, art or politics. She is pleased that Rose is to be her personal maid but is not necessarily looking forward to attending an upcoming ball where she will 'come out' and be introduced to the King and Queen. Everyone at 165 Eaton Place is working to ensure that her grand evening is a memorable one but at the ball she is bored not only with the company but with the empty-headed girls around her. Refusing to act the part, she disappears just before she is to be presented.
