This place takes place many years ago. Actually, I found the characters not all that likable, so didn't rally care what happened to them. Henry misses out on marrying the girl that he loves, because he has to become a lawyer or barrister, and make money, Eight years later, he meets her in India and discovers that she is unfortunately married to a man who beats her. Her husband is shot dead, and she is accused. Henry speaks up for her. There are a lot of twists and turns.
