Far, far from wholesome-as-all-outdoors Mrs. Mike, this tainted tale of Plantagenets gone to seed--bad seeds. They're brother and sister Sean and Liz Tenner who start playing house in the nursery and whose ""wicked game"" is interrupted a few years later by their father. Sean, now only barely able to mumble ""My sister, my bride,"" becomes an aphasic while Liz is sent to Ireland to a great-aunt whose heiress she is destined to become. Sean, still mute, crosses the Atlantic some two years later and is intermittently able to speak to Liz and to her Irish servant girl who loves both of them devotedly, ultimately running away with Sean and enabling the somewhat doubtful lineage to continue via a deathbed union. . . .
