Somerled Sinclair returned after five years to his Scottish castle home to find it shrouded in mist — a mist symbolical of the doubts and difficulties surrounding it. Everything, he found, was changed — his mother shocked by the loss of her husband; his brother Torquil — Lord Ardlair — burdened by the desperate struggle to save the estate; old servants pensioned off; and a certain Miss Alison Graham very much in charge. There was a possible solution in Jennifer Oakroyd, whose millionaire father was determined that she should become Lady Ardlair. But Somerled's initial dislike and suspicion of Alison increased when she informed him that she herself was engaged to Torquil, and had no intention of giving him up.
The Sinclair's problems were overwhelming, but in this story they are at last dispelled, to leave a picture of life in the Highlands most satisfying to anyone who, like the author, knows and loves them.
