The narrative deals with French aristocracy. The grand dame who used to invite the elite of the society is forced to live in seclusion. But far from the city, she again finds love; luck, however favours those who have the guts to act in time. A tale of unrequited love that touches the heart!
The figure of the Vicomtesse de Beauseant rose up suddenly before him with gracious thronging associations. She was a new world for him, a world of fears and hopes, a world to fight for and to conquer. Inevitably he felt the contrast between this vision and the human beings in the shabby room; and then, in truth, she was a woman.
