Overview

The story opens in the Grand Hotel in Rome with a young woman named Stella. While Stella's at dinner with her aunt and uncle and they're discussing matters that, well, aren't particularly interesting, a peculiar man named Sasha Roumovski enters the room. Suddenly, everyone's eyes are on him and it's not because Sasha is attractive. It's quite the opposite.
The story's premise is that Stella's hedged in by her domineering aunt, uncle, their maid, and her soon to be fiance, a priest by the name of Rev. Eustace Medlicott. Stella can't stand her betrothed and during her stay at the hotel, she's entranced by Sasha Roumovski, a man unlike anyone she's ever seen before.
Her relatives call him ugly and distasteful. But Stella sees differently. Through her various meetings with Sasha, she changes her point of view about life and love.
Stella eventually takes control of her life and refuses to be shoved around by others any longer. With the help of Sasha, she unleashes a side of herself that she never knew existed.
