Isabelle, new wife to David, Duke of Kent, has run into an unexpected problem in her marriage: her mother-in-law, Dowager Duchess Theodosia. Forced to spend her days as the captive audience of a tirelessly demanding, malignant narcissist.
Isabelle, new wife to David, Duke of Kent, has what outsiders would consider a “good” marriage: position, lands, big houses in both London and Kent, and money from both her husband and her father. Yet her day to day life has become a nightmare, one which threatens to tear apart both her marriage and her health.
Yet day after day, her husband leaves her alone from breakfast to sunset with no other company than heartless and often irrational Theodosia, who saps her strength and happiness with her bizarre behavior and constant demands for attention
But all is not lost, for her husband is not heartless; merely without understanding, or recourse to do much in a time when the treatment of the mad is so inhumane as to give even the most desperate son pause.
