Overview

With her brother buried now in the churchyard, who is to look after little Annie Anderson?

There is money in the bank enough -- from a time when she had family . . . and a brighter future. Cousin Bruce knows this -- and skinflint though he is, he takes her in among his own.

But in another student she sees a ray of goodness, and a hint of countryside vigor and kindness: Alec Forbes -- whom the world treats no more gently than it does her.
