Colonel Michael Kenyon is in Brussels to fight Napoleon. He lives at the home of a fellow calvary officer whose wife everyone calls St. Catherine for all the care she gives to the wounded.

He already had a disasterous affair with the wife of one of his best friends. Catherine, too, does nothing about the love she feels despite the fact that she knows her husband is unfaithful. But she saves Michael's life after the battle of Waterloo.
