She has commitments and obligations, so John uses all his skills--in and out of bed--to persuade her that her future happiness lies with him. She agrees to marry him. They make plans for a quiet wedding but the protagonists of the old scandal intrude into the present. It takes all Margaret’s efforts, and John’s support, to finally make a break from the past and face a future together.
