When Ferdinand wins a house and estate in Somersetshire at a card game, he is delighted as, though a wealthy man, he is not a landowner. However, when he goes to see his new home, he finds Viola Thornhill living there and claiming that the property was willed to her two years before. Ferdinand knows she cannot possibly be right, Viola flatly refuses to leave, and the stage has been set for an explosively antagonistic, passionate relationship--with numerous unexpected twists and turns.
