Boston woman Charlotte has had her life controlled entirely by her mother; the very wealthy, Mrs. Henry Vale. Feeling despondent, she's convinced to spend some time in a sanitarium. Soon, Charlotte's transformed into a sophisticated, confident woman. On a cruise to South America, Charlotte meets, and begins a torrid affair with Jerry Durrance, a married architect.

Now, Voyager remains a highly narcotic, swoon-inducing romance in the Bette Davis canon - Jeremiah Kipp
