In 1832, after adventuring on the continent and seeing the woman she loved betrothed to a man, Anne Lister (Suranne Jones) returned to Halifax and the declining ancestral home of Shibden Hall. She'd turn her considerable energies and wiles into restoring and rebuilding the family's financial assets--as well as a romantic pursuit of heiress neighbor Ann Walker (Sophie Rundle).
