The first of Jane Duncan's enchanting autobiographical novels tells of the author's childhood at Reachfar. Janet, the narrator was brought up by her stern old grandmother; George, her uncle; and Tom, the hired hand, who was nevertheless one of the family. Into this peaceful backwater come the Miss Boyds, who have come to settle in the neighbourhood. At first everything they say and do offends decent bahaviour by which the community lives. It is only when tragedy overtakes them that the compassion and great-hearted kindness of the Reachfar family and their neighbours is aroused.
