Book Description:
Die junge Ernestine Rehbein, genannt Stine, lebt in einfachen kleinbürgerlichen Verhältnissen bei ihrer verwitweten Schwester Pauline, die zwei Kinder von zwei verschiedenen Männern hat. Bei einer kleinen Abendgesellschaft lernt Stine den kränklichen jungen Grafen Waldemar Haldern kennen. Dieser verliebt sich in Stine und fängt an, um sie zu werben. Pauline rät Stine zur Vorsicht, um nicht ins Gerede zu kommen. Graf Haldern möchte Stine heiraten, doch sein Onkel rät ihm davon ab, da es die Ächtung seiner Familie nach sich ziehen würde.
