After seven years Elisabeth finds her daughter, Louisa and the man, Charles. She gains a position as governess to the girl and she and Charles find the passion they once had. Louisa is very spoiled and doesn't like Elisabeth, but she persists and eventually the girl starts liking the lessons and trusting the woman she doesn't know is her very much missed mother.
