Mr Renton has a large estate in Berkshire, and has three sons between 20 and 25 years old. It has always been understood that upon his death the estate would go to Ben the eldest, and that Laurie and Frank would be well provided for. However one day on a whim he changes his will so that the boys will be limited to £200 per year for a period of seven years. He dies soon thereafter, regretting this foolish step.

This novel depicts the young men's experiences over the seven years, including their struggles and their love stories. Several women have prominent parts in the story, especially the painter Mrs Severn whose close friendship with amateur artist Laurie seems on the verge of becoming something deeper.
