But playing mother to her eccentric siblings proves to be just too much work, and their mansion home quickly becomes a shambles. Providence arrives when humble businessman Graham Smith wants to buy the property. Graham's offer inadvertently attracts the interest of high society, and they descend on the dilapidated Prouty mansion, looking to outbid him. Portia will have to make the right decision for both her andher family, which is made more difficult when she realizes she has fallen in love with Graham.
