Arcadia is the story of various occupants of the English country estate known as Sidley Park. It ranges in setting from 1809 to 1993 to examine the lives of the house's original inhabitants, a vivacious young woman and her tutor, a hermit who lived there for years, and several writers exploring the house's history. The story uses the changing inhabitants of the house to explore the changing mores and conventions of English society.
