search for freedom leads her as a young woman to reject
marriage and financial security offered by Romney Leigh,
her cousin, in favour of an independent life of writing
and working in London.
Her new life is disturbed by the unwanted appearance of Lady Waldemar, a woman desperate to gain Romney's love by any means. Romney has turned to good works and has proposed to a poor country girl, Marion Erle, but Lady Waldemar's schemes prevent the marriage and Marion is banished abroad where she suffers cruelly.
Aurora offers protection to Marion and they travel together to Italy, Aurora's former home. Finally, ten years after their first meeting, Romney and Aurora resolve their earlier differences.
