Three years ago, Susannah Lacey met and fell in love with Captain Winston Jeffries while he was home for a brief respite from the war. And even though the captain had extracted a promise from her not to wait for him to return, and for her to have her London season and to meet other eligible matrimonial prospects, Susannah was certain that she had met her soul mate and the love of her life in Winston Jeffries. She was 16 years old then. Now she's 19, finally having her season, and has firmly resolved to put Winston Jeffries behind her, esp since she's heard nothing from him in almost two years. Imagine her shock then when she sees him at theatre, in good and sound health the very night she's decided to get on with her life!
