Like polished gems, these middle-aged women are splendid, ripening but not fading. They are rich in intelligence, beauty and charm. So why are they unattached?

A little girl, Emlyn, watches with fascination as these beautiful women preen and socialize. If a girl like Emlyn learns how to dress, apply make-up, how to act feminine, she would be guaranteed to find a husband and have children ... but maybe it isn't so simple.
