Soon she finds herself trapped in a loveless marriage that slowly erodes her spirit and threatens to clip the wings of her individualism. Rather than sink into bottomless despair over her misfortune, Cornelia decides to salvage something from her life on the plantation. She accompanies the old company doctor on his weekly treks into the mountains to attend the sick and the poor plantation workers. Her donations of food and medicine for these destitute people earn their respect and loyalty. When Cornelia encounters her wealthy neighboring coffee grower, a spark ignites a dangerous liaison. He represents everything she desires in a man. Fueled by irresistible passion, they are swept up into a perilous world that could only lead to their destruction.
