A glittering stage career and marriage to an earl go out the window when love comes in at the door, and Lynn marries Peter and goes off to Africa. Peter can't accept his luck; he is jealous of their child; he is jealous of her seeing her old love when she returns to England on a visit. There's murder done, and Peter goes to prison, but Lynn waits for him, and love once more finds a way. More full-bodied than the usual Carfrae, but well keyed to her market. Rental primarily.
