StoryBeatrix Potter (Renee Zellweger) is a talented story-teller who creates stories about animals and illustrates them for her own pleasure.
When she takes her drawings to a local publisher she is shocked when they tell her they'll print them. Having already decided that married life is not for her, she does not count on the attraction she feels for the young publisher who is given the responsibility of getting her books out to a waiting public.
