Sous le coup d'un grand chagrin d'amour, un jeune et séduisant millionnaire américain, Georges Bellew, a fui New York. Il erre dans la douce campagne anglaise, n'aspirant qu'à l'oubli et à la solitude.
Comment résister cependant à l'appel de ce petit garçon en larmes qui lui confie sa détresse: il cherche le "trésor" qui sauvera de la ruine sa chère tante Anthéa. En vain...
En Georges découvre Anthéa - ravissante jeune fille mais si farouchement fière qu'elle refuse tout secours. Quel stratagème imaginer? Quel sortilège invoquer?
Quand la lune est pleine et brille de tout son éclat d'or et d'argent, elle a, dit-on, des pouvoirs magiques. L'enfant en est sûr et Georges, bientôt, est près d'y croire... ( )

Book description
When Sylvia Marchmont went to Europe, George Bellew being, at the same time, desirous of testing his newest acquired yacht, followed her, and mutual friends in New York, Newport, and elsewhere, confidently awaited news of their engagement. Great, therefore, was their surprise when they learnt of her approaching marriage to the Duke of Ryde. Bellew, being young and rich, had many friends, very naturally, who, while they sympathized with his loss, yet agreed among themselves, that, despite Bellew's millions, Sylvia had done vastly well for herself, seeing that a duke is always a duke, -- especially in America.

There were, also, divers ladies in New York, Newport, and elsewhere, and celebrated for their palatial homes, their jewels, and their daughters, who were anxious to know how Bellew would comport himself under his disappointment. Some leaned to the idea that he would immediately blow his brains out; others opined that he would promptly set off on another of his exploring expeditions, and get himself torn to pieces by lions and tigers, or devoured by alligators; while others again feared greatly that, in a fit of pique, he would marry some "young person" unknown, and therefore, of course, utterly unworthy.

How far these worthy ladies were right, or wrong in their surmises, they who take the trouble to turn the following pages, shall find out.
