Overview

Containing the books "Ruth Fielding of the Red Mill" and "Ruth Fielding at Briarwood Hall," this volume begins the trials and tribulations of a young girl, Ruth Fielding, an orphan who goes to live with her miserly uncle, Jabez Potter, and his housekeeper, Aunt Alvirah Boggs, who is "nobody's relative, but everybody's aunt." Uncle Jabez reluctantly provides for Ruth and never expresses any kind of love for her, while Aunt Alvirah loves her like a daughter. Ruth is determined to stand on her own and become independent of her uncle, but she has many obstacles to overcome, not the least of which is the loss of everything she owns except for what she has in her purse and the clothes she is wearing.

• * "Ruth Fielding of the Red Mill" is the story of Ruth's arrival at Red Mill, and how she manages to save the life of Tom Cameron. After that excitement, she meets her Uncle Jabez, not the easiest man to befriend. How she manages to spread the word of a coming flood, loses all her possessions, befriends the obnoxious cripple Mercy, convinces her uncle to let her attend school, and then offends most of her classmates, all the while keeping her sunny disposition is a wonder to behold. Every triumph seems to come with another tragedy for Ruth, but she never gives up.

• * In "Ruth Fielding at Briarwood Hall," to Ruth's astonishment, her miserly Uncle Jabez sends her off to a boarding school to accompany her best friend Helen. Once there, the Upedes and Fussy Curls, the only two social clubs at the school, vie for their membership. If she doesn't join the Upedes, she'll make enemies and alienate Helen, but she really doesn't like the leader of the Upedes.Will Ruth join, or will she start a new club? But there are also mysteries at the school: is the fountain in front of the school really haunted? Why is that scary harpist lurking around the school? What is the connection between him and their French teacher? Throw in a late-night candy party, a skating outing that almost ends in tragedy, and a lost letter, and Ruth has her hands full.
