The missing Rothschild heiress, Irma Leopold, has been found, remarkably unharmed, but claiming to remember nothing.

As she recovers from her nine day ordeal at the Fitzhuberts’ summer mansion, she takes refuge in dreams of a future with her rescuer Michael, the handsome young nobleman she loved at first sight the afternoon of the fateful excursion.

Meanwhile, rumours spread and the sergeant turns his attention to the college. What secrets lie hidden behind the locked gates? His investigation intensifies Hester's paranoia and she grows certain that the young orphan, Sara, knows something about the disappearance.
