High-born but poor Dulcie Larondie is working as a bar maid in the Skagg Inn when she accepts a marriage proposal from the wealthy Sir Brice Skene, rejecting in the process the love of David Remon, an impoverished astronomer. Sir Brice turns out to be a drunk, a gambler and a wife-beater, who loses his fortune four years into the marriage. Remon wins her back in a game of cards with Skene, who is shortly afterwards murdered by a blackmailing acquaintance. This leaves Dulcie free to marry David.
