The story is set in Ireland and follows the lives of two families, the Desmonds and the Fitzgeralds, who are bound together by a tragic event. The novel begins with the death of Herbert Fitzgerald, the heir to Castle Richmond, the ancestral home of the Fitzgerald family. The Desmonds, who are close friends of the Fitzgeralds, are also affected by this event as their daughter, Clara, was engaged to Herbert.
