Abandoned and still in love, Fanny finds out she's expecting Marius' child. Now an unmarried mother, she's unable to take responsibility for her and her child's future. With the approval of her mother and of Cesar, her child grandfather, she gives in and marries Honore Panisse, a wealthy merchant from the Old Port who is thirty years her senior. He recognizes her child and raises him as his own. Panisse also brings them wealth, a renewed social status and a comfortable future. A few months after the wedding and the birth of the child, Marius, while traveling by sea to faraway lands and with no resources, realizes he still has feelings for Fanny, who still loves him. He decides to come back to conquer her again and to take his child back.
