This story begins with a new drama, where that story takes place in the early 18th century. During that period, England was at war with the French and the events may still be turbulent. Queen Anne decides to take over the throne, and her close friend, Lady Sarah the Country, decides instead to try to reconcile her opinion with Anne. Events may change completely when a new server called Abigail arrives. Shortly after Abigail's presence, Sarah takes that maid under her wing and sees Abigail as a chance to return to her aristocratic roots that seem to be shattered.
