Shirley tells the story of conflicted mill-owner Robert Moore, whose desire to restore his family honour and fortune is in direct conflict with that of his heart. Set during the Napoleonic War in a period of economic unrest, Shirley is the tale of discovering what is most important in life: wealth and restoring one's family name or love and self-fulfillment.
