Never one to deny her desires, Carlotta plunges into a torrid affair with Matt, a betrayal that sends the trusting Demaris into a nearly fatal illness, which only Carlotta's child, the enchanting Clarissa, can save her. With Demaris restored to health and a quiet if empty life, and Carlotta reunited in France with her true love, Hessenfield, it seems that each sister has realized her destiny, until a desperate letter from Paris reveals the terrible price Carlotta has paid for her happiness and begs Demaris to save the child Clarissa from a similar fate.
