The Hurlingham Club in Buenos Aires is a little piece of England. Here Audrey Garnet grows up and loses her heart to Louis Forrester, a talented, troubled young man who sets tongues wagging with his eccentric behaviour and chequered past. But a family tragedy brings their romance to an abrupt end and Audrey, ever the dutiful daughter, thrills her parents by accepting Louis's successful, respectable elder brother, Cecil, as her husband. It is a sacrifice she bitterly regrets, and despite the pleasures of family life and, in time, beloved daughters of her own, Audrey hears the sweet, plaintive notes of the forget-me-not sonata, which Louis had written for her years before, echo through the years as a reminder of the love that she has lost.
