But in a fit of petulance Marianne breaks off her engagement, much to Troy's relief and her family's mortification. As Sarah and Troy's friendship blossoms, Marianne warns her sister that a match will never be permitted and their parents will do anything to avoid a scandal. But with the war clouds gathering and women's emancipation taking root, Sarah senses that time is precious. In a moment of weakness, Sarah becomes pregnant. Cast off by her family, and with Troy serving overseas, will Sarah ever find happiness with the man she loves, or is her life ruined for ever?
