They were an ill-assorted pair - Stella Percy, cool, aloof lady of leisure,with every quality needed to live a life of luxurious elegance except money;and Matthew Armstrong, bluff, honest Yorkshire, who believed in calling aspade a spade, but had plenty of 'brass' which he was proud to think had allbeen earned by his own hard work. From the first he had made no secret ofhis attraction to Stella, and when she accepted his proposal she was atleast honest enough to admit that it was for the sake of his money. So begantheir curious relationship. With so much honesty all round, it might wellhave succeeded - and as Matthew had hoped, love might have grown betweenthem eventually - if Stella could only escape from the memory of CharlesHeyward, the symbol of her former life.
