Paris, after Napoleon: The restoration has triumphed, ushering in an era of hypocrisy, superficiality and avarice. Antoinette de Navarreins, the coquette wife of the Duke of Langeais, is a product of the epoch. Armand de Montriveau falls hopelessly in love with her the moment he sees her, and it would appear that his love is reciprocated. However, the duchess makes use of all her fashionable wiles to toy with his affections. Five years later Montriveau leads his troops to a Spanish island. He has scoured every convent in Europe and the New World in search of Antoinette he once loved desperately - and who has now disappeared without a trace. Here at last, he finds her.
