The Story

This early novel is a sequel to Margaret Maitland, and continues the story ten years later - again told by loving aunt Margaret Maitland. The two couples who fell in love in the earlier novel are now married with children. But all is not smooth in their lives:  Grace feels compelled to offer a home to her young, difficult half-sister Rhoda;  and Mary fears her marriage to Allan is in danger.
