Synopsis: The plot of this novel of contemporary manners comes to focus upon a duel between two young women which is not the less fierce because fought out in the salon, the court and the ballroom.
The principles, both vivid creatures, are Fleur Forsyte, surrounded from birth by the Victorian Forsyte traditions, and Marjorie Ferrar, who with the license of her social group, “lives dangerously. “
About this central episode revolve many characters expressive of the conflicting view-points of the day, and by their actions contributing to the development of a brilliant satire on modern society.
