On a warm spring day in 1924, house maid and foundling Jane Fairchil finds herself alone on Mother’s Day. Her employers, Mr and Mrs Niven, are out and she has the rare chance to spend an afternoon of abandon with her secret lover, Paul, the boy from the manor house nearby who is Jane’s long-term love despite the fact that he’s engaged to be married to another woman, a childhood friend and daughter of his parents’ friends. But events that neither can foresee will change the course of Jane’s life forever.
