The story revolves around Rebecca Smart. Born into a


poor family, she is determined to better her life through
marriage and money, even if this is at the expense of the
people close to her. She is ruthless. Sometimes her plans
are successful and sometimes not, but she and her husband
go through life leaving debts and ruined lives in their
wake. She finally gets what she deserves, when a scandal of
her own making, nearly destroys her. Her friend, Amelia
Sedley, an innocent and loving person, suffers also, but her
downfall is due to circumstances and fate, and not vanity
and greed.
Chapters 15: Rebecca leaves school to start a job as a
governess at Sir Crawleys house, but before she starts
work she spends a week at her best friend Amelias house.
There, she flirts with Joseph Sedley, Amelias unattractive
but rich brother. We are then introduced to George
Osborne, a handsome army Lieutenant and his friend
Captain Dobbin, a normal looking man of good character.
The group attend a party where Joseph disgraces himself
by getting drunk. The next day, he leaves for Scotland and
Rebecca starts her job at the home of Sir Pitt Crawley and
his two sons, Pitt and Rawdon Crawley. She is an effective
governess and learns a lot about the family. She lies about

her own, supposedly rich, family. Miss Crawley, Sir Pitts


sister, comes to visit. She is a rich old woman. She adores
Rawdon Crawley, a fun loving gentleman who enjoys
gambling. Miss Crawley pays his debts. Rebecca makes
sure Miss Crawley likes her because she realises how rich
and influential she is. She also starts flirting with Rawdon.
Chapters 69: Amelia is in love with George Osborne.
He likes her but is not in love. Georges father had
originally told his son to marry her, but has now changed
his mind because Amelias family has lost all their money.
Meanwhile, Sir Pitt visits Rebecca in London. She is in
London looking after the sick Miss Crawley. He asks
Rebecca to be his wife and to come back to his home, Queens Crawley. She tells him she cant
because she
is already married. Miss Crawley is angry that a mere
governess, Rebecca, has married her favourite man,
Rawdon. The new couple worry that she might not give
them any money. Meanwhile, the Sedley family is ruined
and their things are sold. Old Mr Osborne tells Amelia
that the wedding is cancelled. Dobbin, who only has
Amelias interest at heart, makes arrangements so that the
couple can get married. George, Rawdon and Dobbin
then go to war in Brussels. The ladies and Joseph Sedley
go with them. George flirts with Becky, but Amelia doesnt
know. Joseph, who is a coward, wants to leave Brussels
but he hasnt any horses. Rebecca sells him two for a huge
price. A battle takes place and George is killed.
Chapters 1013: After the battle of Waterloo, Colonel
Rawdon and Becky go to Paris. Mrs Becky Crawley is
popular with the Paris elite. When she gives birth to a
baby boy, Miss Crawley is so enraged that she orders

Rawdons brother, Pitt, to marry Lady Jane to stop


Rawdon getting money from the family. Rawdon and
Rebecca live well in Paris with no money. They cheat hotel
owners and have debts. They then return to London.
Meanwhile, Georges father is in torment over his dead
son. He sees Amelia and Dobbin one day in Brussels
while visiting the place where his son died. Dobbin tells
him that Amelia is ill, pregnant and in need of money.
Old Osborne refuses to see her. Dobbin is then deployed.
Rawdon and Becky rent a house from an old friend and
servant of the Crawleys, Mr Raggles. They dont pay the
rent and Raggles goes to prison because he cant pay the
loan on his house. We learn that Dobbin gave money to
Amelia and pretended it had come from the army, and
that old Mr Osborne was told his grandson was beautiful,
just like his father.
Chapters 1418: Old Sir Pitt Crawley dies and his
son, the new Sir Pitt, invites Rawdon and Rebecca to
the house. Rebecca is already making plans. She wants
Rawdon to get a job as governor, using the help of Sir
Pitt and Lord Steyne. Meanwhile, old Mr Osborne has
made Amelia an offer. He will pay her money, if she allows
her son to live with him. She reluctantly agrees. Later,
Rawdon goes to prison for debt. When he leaves prison
unexpectedly early, he finds Rebecca and Lord Steyne
holding hands. He challenges the Lord to a duel. Later he
discovers that Rebecca has secretly hidden money from
him, and that is enough to end their marriage. He is
offered a post of governor and dies four years later. Amelia, her son Georgy and Joseph travel
to Europe and meet up
with Rebecca at a dance. She is leading a terrible life of

poverty and is pursued by the scandal about her and Lord


Steyne. They take pity on her, except Dobbin who leaves,
apparently for ever. Rebecca tells Amelia some unpleasant
truths about her dead husband, and produces evidence

Dobbins affections. They are later married. Rebecca looks
after Joseph Sedley till his death and receives half his
money. She is never spoken of again.
