Summary
Oscar is an Anglican priest who gambles discreetly and donates his winnings to help the poor. Lucinda is an Australian businesswoman who boldly defies the rules of 19th-century society. When they meet over an innocent game of cards, their passion for gambling leads them both down a road of romance, chance and fate that changes their lives forever
