Her parents are very supportive and provide her with every opportunity to pursue her dreams. But when the local village girl accuses her best friend of practicing witchcraft, Elizabeth confronts her.

Although the circumstances do not make sense, Elizabeth persists in trying to prove the woman wrong. Her best friend tries to help her out by threatening to expose her secret to the others in the community unless she promises to leave the countryside and marry George Price, the man of her dreams. Although Price is a perfect match for her, she decides to pursue her relationship with him anyway. She plans to return to the countryside to wed Price, only to run into an unexpected event that causes both of them to fall in love with one another. This leads to the marriage between them and the subsequent abridged wedding of Elizabeth and George.
