After an uncomfortable journey she finally locates her twin and settles down to contemplate her possible future, without a husband.Hugo knows he has to find her, get her back and marry her but a series of unforeseen incidents delay his search and when he finally does reach her he has Charlies protectiveness to overcome and Georges lack of trust.
