Newly married for just 6 months, and having had the taste of a fabulous, social life in London, Gwyneth’s husband, Eustace, leaves for West Africa where he’s to be stationed and Gwyneth returns home to her parents. Finding life apart arduous and with Gwyneth’s ardent desire for adventure and travel, Eustace returns home after a year.
