Set in 1890 Victorian England, Dark Persuasion tells a romantic story of regret, restitution, and forgiveness between three individuals who are prisoners of their past. Rival brothers seek to win one woman in a fierce competition, each driven by different motives. Charlotte Grey has no idea of their identity or their sudden interest in courting a blind woman.
When Patrick Rochester is the victor and wins her hand in marriage, he is haunted by grief over his complicity in Charlotte's blindness. Finally she falls in love and completely trusts him, but the revelation of his true identity threatens to destroy their relationship. In the end, Charlotte learns that love can be blind for everyone--even her.
