Edward is a self-made man, but since he has no experience in dating nobility he almost blows his chances with Sophia after trusting in a gentleman's etiquette book. Sophia is all for severing ties with him, much to the outrage of her parents, but then she unexpectedly discovers that without the false formality he really isn't as taciturn as she first thought.
