Force of circumstance had obliged Sandra Cunningham to take a post as typist-companion to an elderly author, but her new life on the prosperous Tegwani Citrus Estate in South Africa turned out to be most pleasant. Mrs. Tremayn, in fact, thought so highly of her that she began to engineer a romance between her and her nephew, Philip.

Nevertheless, Sandy soon began to wonder if he were not right in his opinion of Philip - to have, in fact, second thoughts about both men. But could she walk out on Philip now? And as for Brin, how could she ever hope to attract him - especially once his old and dear friend Katrina had arrived on the scene?
