Angelet and Bersaba Landor were born identical twins. But as they grew to adulthood, they found their likeness was purely physical. For while Angelet was outgoing with a sunny disposition, while the passions that burned fiercely within Bersaba were of a different nature. Before she was seventeen, Bersaba was convinced she was hopelessly in love with her handsome cousin, Bastian, and had undertaken to test that love. Shortly thereafter, Bersaba fell ill of the dreaded smallpox and Angelet was sent to safety in London, life changed forever for the Landors.

In London, Angelet encountered Richard Tolworthy, and almost before she could believe it found herself married to him. Richard was a king's general, years her elder, whose first marriage had ended in tragedy and transported to preside over his considerable estates. At first there were days of happiness when it seemed Richard would have the heir he so desperately sought, then a recovered Bersaba came to comfort her sister and met Angelet's husband.
