In 19th-century England, a pretty orphan girl seeks to rise above poverty and marry the man of her dreams and also climb the social ladder, but no respectable man wants her because she is a governess and zzzz.... I got bored and went to find something else to do. Natasha said it got a lot better after I left, like with war and stuff. I'm sure it's a gender thing.
It's a patience thing, my dear. Though it's truly a little too long. Looks like an American version of "War and Peace".
