In 1846, an American journalist, Danae Thorton, travels to Athens to interview the richest woman in Greece, the famed Duchess of Plaisance. As she wanders through the city of King Otto and Queen Amalia, everywhere she turns she hears talking about this eccentric woman. In the city, Danae will come to know love in the face of Ioannis Mavromichalis but she will also become entangled in the conspiracies, feuds and delicate boundaries that make up the corridors and salons of the richest homes in Athens and the palace.

This is the astonishing story of the Duchess of Plaisance, a woman who struggled against fate with only her love for Greece as her weapon. Sophie de Marbois-Lebrun was one of the most important female supporters of the Greek Cause in the Greek War of Independence.
