Practically penniless, Dorcas Wareham is forced to accept a position as a governess. Whilst travelling to her new employment, she meets Suzette, who tells her that she had rashly married a Captain Jack Bickley on the eve of his leaving for the Boer War, but now realises she does not want to live in the country. She suggests that Dorcas takes her place, saying that Jack didn't expect to survive the war anyway. With some misgivings, Dorcas finally agrees. But Jack does return from the war...
