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.
