Margaret comes of age at 18, until then she is left in the charge of her father's eccentric sister, The Honourable Miss Cheyne.She is a recluse, living in a lonely house, Cheyne Court, on the banks of the Thames.She has kept her niece at the convent of Notre Dame in Paris, since her childhood.Disappointed in love herself, Miss Cheyne has decided that her niece shall also be a spinster.However Lady Margaret has contrived to meet and fall in love with Sir Edgar Brenton, the son of the man who jilted the Honourable Miss Cheyne, and whose chance visit to Paris with his mother, a year earlier, led to his acquaintanceship with Lady Margaret, and with whom he is deeply in love.
