On her sixteenth birthday, Enola wakes to find that her mother has disappeared, leaving behind only some birthday gifts. A week later, she meets her brothers Mycroft and Sherlock at a train station, although they fail to recognize her at first, not having seen her in many years. Sherlock finds her to be intelligent, whereas Mycroft finds her troublesome, and as her legal guardian intends to send her away to a finishing school run by the stern Miss Harrison.
The story follows Enola as she travels to London to find her missing mother but ends up on a thrilling adventure, pairing up with a runaway lord as they attempt to solve a mystery that threatens the entire country.
