The problem? Their fertile father is so busy traveling and searching for willing husbands that his modest estate has fallen into disrepair. They are near penniless, and well, what wealthy gentleman wants a wife with no dowry? But that won't stop these spirited sisters from taking their fate into their own hands and ensuring that not only will they save their home from total destitution, but they will find love too.
