After their brother-in-law, Philip, is determined to travel down to east Florida for business, two early twenties girls and their sister, Philip's wife, are allowed to tag along. Thus, the Hunter sisters enjoy their trip down to the sunny state, revisiting places along the east coast of Florida they trekked through ten years earlier. Elizabeth, Christine, and Eleanor all enjoy their vacation escaping the cold New York City weather and the two unmarried sisters enjoy the attentions of several young men.

Local locations visited or mentioned in the text include the Old City Gates, the Hotel Ponce de Leon, Memorial Presbyterian Church, the Alcazar Hotel, Cordova Street, and the St. Johns River.
