Her love for James outbalances her career and she takes the plunge into living the life of a farmer’s wife at Boscath farm in Scotland. Arriving at Boscath, they employ a cook, Miss Flockie, who is exceptional in her duties and more importantly, a friend to Rhoda. Their new home, although quaint, is isolated, and Rhoda misses her life in London. With James tending to the farm, Rhoda impulsively decides she will start painting again and finds inspiration in her beautiful surroundings. Their marriage is strong and both James and Rhoda rise to the challenge of their life in rough weather.
