Enola Holmes’ storyline
The plot took place in 19th century England, on the morning of Enola’s 16th Birthday. Enola wakes up to find out that her mother was missing. Furthermore, her mother left behind all sorts of odd gifts, but nothing appears to be a clue on where she’s gone and why.
Because of this, Enola was suddenly under the care of her brothers, Sherlock and Mycroft. Her brothers attempted to send her away to a finishing school for “proper” young ladies, despite her plea to look for their mother.
