Daphne Lethbridge is bright, romantic and vivacious. The First World War has ravaged Europe, but it has done nothing to daunt her spirit. Her enjoyment. though, is soured by her cynical contemporary, Virginia Denniston, who spars with Daphne on every occasion. Beneath their surface civility seethes a deep enmity but, when Daphne realises the bitter truth of her marriage, it takes a chance encounter for her disillusionment to give way to an understanding of a woman's destiny.
