The years have done nothing to dull Evan Smithson's cold fury against his father's family. Born the illegitimate son of Guy Trent, Evan has lived his life fuelled by the desire for vengeance, leaving little time for his daughter Carrie and her questions about their own family history.
Carrie turns to Jamie Trent, Guy Trent's grandson and heir, for answers, and the pair fall in love. Evan stands between the lovers, convincing Carrie that Jamie has betrayed her. Carrie's new husband takes her to London, Paris, and even India, but her thoughts keep turning towards Jamie Trent. How can she live in the present when her heart remains in the past?
