In 1887, in the excitement of Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee, fourteen-year-old Caroline Tressidor blurts out a secret. Though it is a secret she does not understand, her punishment is swift: Her beautiful mother disappears; her father banishes Caroline to a family estate in Cornwall. There, puzzled and lonely, she begins a search for understanding that takes her back to London and to heartbreak; sends her to the South of France and a romantic reunion with the man she has learned to love and fear; returns her to Cornwall, to tragedy and a desperate murderer; and ends ten years after its beginnings as she watches the plain little Queen celebrate her Diamond Jubilee.
