The four pretty young Misses Admiral, having shed their tyrannical Scandinavian Pa, are kicking up their heels in the Charleston when their orphaned niece Jenny arrives from Australia to live with them.  The child is as romantic and flighty as they, and in spite of their game efforts to rear her respectably, Jenny joins the household as just one ore frolicsome girl – just considerably shorter and with freckles! Set in a New Zealand country town in the 1920s.
