The young dowager Duchess of Belfort, Clarissa Harcourt, escapes the unwanted attentions of her late husband's odious heir by fleeing to Yorkshire and settling on a farm under an assumed name. The new Duke has done everything in his power to destroy her reputation and get her to become his mistress. She will not come into her inheritance until she has been a widow for 18 months, and until then she intends to live quietly and unobtrusively.
