Overview
The only daughter of a French Marquis, the headstrong Marguerite was the apple of her father’s eye. Jealous and embittered, her mother schemed to rid herself of the seventeen-year-old girl through marriage to a much older man.

Battling against almost insurmountable odds, the young woman regained prosperity through grim determination and her own merit. However, her personal independence came at a price…
