As the Belle Epoque dawns, Paris attracts artists from everywhere. One is Jeanette Palmer, daughter of a prominent Ohio family, who has left Vassar College under a cloud of scandal.

She begins to achieve a level of artistic success. And her happiness increases as she and Edward grow more intimate with each other.
