New York City
Maggie Wylie is 27, unmarried, and with no prospects because, as she says, she “has no charm.” Her father, Alick, and her two brothers, James and David, the proprietors of Wylie and Sons, the local granite quarry, are desperate to find her a husband. Meantime, Wylie and Sons set a trap to catch a supposed burglar, who turns out to be the brilliant, but destitute, young John Strand, who has been breaking and entering to read the 600 books in their library. Instead of turning Sand over to the police, the Wylies strike a deal with him that solves the problem of Maggie’s spinsterhood.
