It treats the darker aspects of human passion as well as the innocence of young love, especially from the woman's point of view. It is a tale of 'mystery, entanglement, surprise, and moral obliquity', in which Cytherea Graye, beloved by a young architect, Edward Springrove, is forced by poverty to accept a post as lady's maid to the eccentric Miss Aldclyffe, the woman whom her father had loved but had been unable to marry.
