Plot summary

This is the story of a beautiful woman set mainly in Melbourne, Victoria and England, from the early 1900s to the Second World War.

Lucinda Vane is born into a wealthy Melbourne family. Nellie Melba appears in the novel, singing at a garden party thrown by Lucinda's mother, and is described as having the "loveliest voice in the world".[2] Lucinda spurns the love of a distinguished family friend, Tony Duff, to marry the dashing aide-de-camp to the Governor, Hugo Brayford. Lucinda's life of ease is replaced by hardship when Hugo takes her to England just before the First World War. She then realises that her husband has married her for her money, and he has a mistress.
