The year is 1742. Margot is a young, convent-raised bride. At eighteen, she is taken to her husband’s home. But things are not as she had expected them to be. The companion hired to take her to her husband is a lot like a governess – a very strict one. And when she arrives at her husband’s home, she learns she is to call him… Papa. Margot soon learns she is to occupy a shadowy world, a bride in the truest sense of the world, but also “in the nursery,” subject to the strictest discipline from both “Papa,” and Miss Della.
