Passionately in love with Lucien de Sardou, a young French aristocrat, Fleur Garton flees the emotional entanglements of her home life in England to live with him in the beautiful family Chateau, but their happiness together is shortlived. War breaks out and within two weeks Lucien is dead - one of the first to be killed. Alone in the Chateau with Lucien's mother, the Countess, Fleur leads a solitary life until, in mortal danger from the occupying Germans, she is forced to embark on a hazardous journey across France, that leads from old dreams to new joy and happiness.
