Lorna Fairfax was delighted to run into her old school friend Amalia again, and even more excited when Amalia, married now and expecting her first child, invited Lorna to Portugal, to keep her company until the baby was born. But much as she enjoyed seeing Portugal, Lorna could not help feeling how repressive so many of their customs were - in particular the way in which women were regarded as merely part of the background, expected to content themselves with staying at home and caring for their families. Not that any of this would have mattered had Lorna not been unwise enough to fall in love with the masterful head of the household, Rafael Rodriguez - and found herself in the position of having to accept this alien way of life for herself, or give up this man who had become so dear to her. Should she back out while there was still time, and leave rafael to the beautiful Portuguese girl, Inez, who would be so much more suited to him in every way?
