Heiresses twice over, Viola and her young sister traveled to exotic Khartoum
to be with their guardian, the sophisticated rock-steady Lionel. But Viola’s excitement
was spoiled by her sister’s obvious infatuation with Lionel — and the presence of the
out-going Ted, Viola’s determined suitor.
Violently objecting to a marriage between Viola and Ted, Lionel proposed himself —
and Viola, already deeply in love with him, happily accepted. But her chance for happiness
was destroyed by the vengeful Ted –who knew of Lionel’s financial affairs. Viola could never
be sure if Lionel really loved her–or her money.
