Davina Glentyre is on trial for the murder of her father. All that was once familiar and dear is now shadowed by scandal and mistrust. Her happy young life in Edinburgh had vanished in the wake of her mother's recent death. Her father seemed strangely changed. And when Davina's beloved governess was abruptly dismissed, an unlikely replacement was found--the lusty, auburn-haired Zillah Grey, who stayed to become the new Mrs. Glentyre. That was the year Davina's father died, the year in which she stands accused.
