The second volume is concerned with her trial and condemnation. Having been seduced and made pregnant by Staunton, Effie has hidden her condition from her sister, father, and employers. Since she cannot produce the child in court and has informed nobody of her condition, it is presumed that she has murdered her child to conceal her guilt. The truth is that the baby has been stolen by Staunton's demented former mistress Madge Wildfire while Effie lay sick. Effie's sister Jeanie faces a moral dilemma in court when asked whether Effie told her of her condition. Although a white lie would save Effie's life, Jeanie's religious and moral convictions forbid her to tell an untruth.
Effie is sentenced to death. Volume III covers Jeanie's journey to London in the course of which she meets both Madge Wildfire and her mother Meg Murdockson who has sold Effie's son to a vagrant woman in revenge for Staunton's seducing her daughter. In London Jeanie is aided by the Duke of Argyle, who manages to secure her a successful interview with the Queen. The final volume describes Jeanie's marriage to the Presbyterian minister Reuben Butler and their newfound prosperity living on the estate of the Duke of Argyle. Effie, meanwhile, marries Staunton.
