When Enola Holmes' (the younger sister of Sherlock Holmes) mother runs away on her 14th birthday her brothers Sherlock and Mycroft decide to turn Enola into a "young lady" ready to be presented to society. However the adventurous, tomboyish Enola runs away. While on the run she finds herself in the middle of the mysterious disappearance of the Marquess of Basilweather.
