At age 15, Charlotte is a pupil in Mme Du Pont's school for young ladies. An army officer, Montraville, aided by his libertine friend Belcour and Mlle La Rue, a teacher at the school, seduces the girl, who elopes with him from England to New York. There he deserts her to marry an heiress, Julia Franklin. Charlotte gives birth to a daughter, Lucy, but, abandoned even by the heartless Mlle La Rue, now married to Colonel Crayton, she dies in poverty. Her father later adopts Lucy, but refuses to punish the repentant Montraville. The latter in a duel kills his former friend Belcour, who had further misled Charlotte, and returns to Julia.
