Betrayed by his wife, Stephen Stone spirits his son Henry away to a remote tropical island and trains him to be an ideal physical specimen and a perfect gentleman. When Henry returns to civilization as a young man, he finds that his father's business has grown into a huge conglomerate, which Henry now owns. Although a great conversationalist and excellent company, well versed in etiquette and extraordinarily nice, Henry has never seen a woman - his father taught him never to trust a female and that love itself is a myth. Henry's collision with the contemporary world and the modern woman is fascinating and complicated, for both Henry and his society.
