Her parents guillotined during The Terror for their loyalty to Marie Antoinette, Marianne d'Asselnat is whisked out of France by her godfather Gauthier de Chazay and taken to live with her maternal Aunt Ellis at Selton Hall in England. Ellis adores the infant on site and raises her as her own. On the brink of womanhood at seventeen, her aunt's dying wish is for Marianne to wed Francis Cranmere, the son of an old friend and the story begins on her wedding night in 1809 - a wedding night that goes horribly awry with the turn of a card - and Marianne's peaceful world is thoroughly turned upside down and inside out
