Both families also come into contact with Leonard Bast and his wife, a couple near the lowest tier of the rigid class system.

Margaret must reconcile her independent spirit with her desire for companionship and a comfortable place in Edwardian society. Her moral strength is eventually able to resolve the tangle of opposites.
