In 1894, Charles and Jocelyn Rutherford are living a quiet and happy life. Jocelyn, ashamed of a disfiguring birthmark on her face, remains secluded on their estate in rural England, while Charles spends a great deal of time in London as a member of Parliament. For all their separations, they are a devoted couple and adore their three children. However, when Charles has a religious awakening, Jocelyn begins to fear she is losing him. Her own religious conversion soon makes their marriage even sounder. Their daughter, Amanda, on the other hand, finds religion stifling and begins to grow away from her family.
