The hero Patrick has many chances to make Kitty his wife, but doesn't realize his feelings until she's married to someone else. After that husband dies, he could marry her again, but sets sail for America instead. The heroine, idiot that she was through this entire ulcer-inducing epic, trots off to America to find him, only to be thought a mulatto and sold into slavery .

Kitty is rescued by Charles, the man who is to become her next husband. The sad part for the reader is that you actually WANT the heroine to stay with Charles and to forget about Patrick. Charles is good looking, treats Kitty like a queen, etc. But no, Henley is intent upon returning Kitty to Patrick, the sorriest excuse for a hero Ms. Virginia's ever written.
