It's a dream come true. For years Tracy Shaw has kept secret her love for childhood friend Sebastian Lemaire. Tracy was a fine girl and delicate beauty, but she was the village doctor's daughter, and Sebastian was already a very wealth young man, dazzled by fast cars and fast women.

Now, incredible as it seems, Sebastian comes home from a whirlwind vacation abroad - and asks Tracy to marry him. But people say he is still intoxicated by a girl named Conseulo, a worldly and sensuous jet-set beauty, who rejected him.

Does Sebastian really love Tracy, or he is just on the rebound? How can Tracy be sure of the affections of the man she loves, and make him forget another woman's undeniable glamour?
