Sir Lawrence Mont, uncle of Dinny Charwell, tells the story of Dinny, and of Wilfrid Desert who once loved Fleur Forsyte and was eventually best man at her wedding. Wilfrid returns from the Middle East with a skeleton in his cupboard. Dinny is unaware of the nature of his trouble, and meeting him by chance is immediately much attracted to him, even though Fleur warns her against him. The attraction is mutual, and Wilfrid plans further meetings with Dinny, ignoring the veiled hints by one Jack Muskham.
