Robert is naturally devastated and is trying to figure out how to help tell his wife the tragic news when the doctor offers a suggestion; as it so happens, another baby was born at exactly the same time and the mother died in childbirth. The doctor tells Robert that the mother had no relatives and the father had died months ago, which leaves the baby with no one, he suggests accepting this child as his own and sparing his wife the tragic news of their own child’s death; Robert agrees and the child is named Damian. Although the Thorns believe that their child is a perfectly normal and healthy little boy, after the death of a close friend of Robert’s which lines him up as the Ambassador of England they soon find themselves confronted with events that contradict this.
