But as he gets to know her, Virgil discovers someone as intelligent and passionate as she is beautiful - someone who has been gravely misunderstood. For her part, Margerie finds Virgil irresistible - with or without the help of his special medicine. But she knows she could never make a respectable wife for Virgil. And yet, despite herself, Margerie can't help but wonder....
