Anne, or lady Regina Anne Hayle as she was named at birth, is daughter of earl of Summervill, and it would seem, she should share her circle’s convictions and views on life.
But she is different. She doesn’t like when one has nothing to be proud of but his noble birth. She is sincere and has easy manner, due to that she can’t endure any kind of pretence, dissimulation or ostentatious courtesy.
And when her parents offer her to think about a prospect of marriage with duke of Chealthorn, one of the most noble and wealthy men in the country, she refuses indignantly. “I‘m not too silly or vain to marry a duke. It will never happen!”.
But who may know, perhaps in the future she will have to break her promise?..
