"Torn between her dual personalities of a home-loving wife and a romance-seeking adventuress, Sandra Waring succumbs to the latter influence and makes a bargain with Stephen Winslow to help her husband, David, who faces financial ruin. This arrangement leads Sandra to a glamorous life in European capitals; a sojourn on the Riviera with François Molyneaux, who proves to be a crooked gambler using her as bait; and an affair with banker Henri La Flamme, who is arrested for embezzlement. Disillusionment follows disillusionment, and finally a contrite Sandra returns home believing David to be in love with Mait Stanley and resolved to end her own life. Wandering into a church, she is found by David's friend, the Reverend Hapgood, and is reunited with her forgiving husband."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
