1909, London. Harry Gordon Selfridge is a man with a mission: he wants to make shopping as thrilling as sex. Pioneering and reckless, with an almost manic energy, Harry creates a theater of retail where any topic or trend that is new, exciting, entertaining or just eccentric is showcased.

Rose Selfridge is Harry's soul mate, providing a true sense of home for her bold yet sometimes unstable husband. An educated woman, a former painter, and a prominent member of society in Chicago, she is something of a fish out of water in the rigidly stratified London society, with its puzzling traditions and expectations. She is dutiful in her quiet beauty and handles Harry's indiscretions with a weary grace - after all, she has seen it all before. But as Selfridges takes off and Harry is home less frequently, a quiet rebellion stirs in the very traditional Rose. Isolated and lonely, she heads to the National Gallery, where a tempestuous friendship with a handsome young artist forms.
