When Emma Daniels’ well-to-do family finds itself destitute, she answers an ad for the Gilbert Company seeking young women to be waitresses at hotel restaurants along remote railroad lines out west. The rules for a Gilbert Girl are strict: work hard, act respectably at all times, and no courting allowed.

Against the glittering backdrop of her professional triumphs is a dismal record of private failures. Then she meets the enigmatic Nicholas Gault . . .
