Much is expected of Octavia Smith. Growing up a much-loved only child surrounded by family friends like George Bernard Shaw and William Morris, Octavia takes it as a matter of course that she will more than meet those expectations. Her childhood ambition is to change the world, but will the sometimes chaotic and often somber events of the early twentieth century allow her to? During her university career, Octavia joins the Suffragettes, becoming passionately devoted to the 'cause'. But will the arrival on the scene of the attractive Tommy Meriton give her passions another path to follow? While the horrors of World War One and subsequent events threaten to tear apart her delicate network of friends and family, Octavia must choose how she make her mark on her time.
