Christie Farrell is the eldest daughter of a plantation owner in Charleston, South Carolina. She leads a sheltered existence until her father decides that she should marry. The story depicts Christie's development from privileged daughter, via physical and mental scars and challenges, to a generous and complete woman. Jean Morley writes with humour and compassion and the atmosphere of eighteenth-century plantation living in Charleston and village customs in England are vividly brought to life.
