Brookville is a town without hope; it is financially and spiritually dead. But one day a mysterious stranger arrives, and life begins to change. Miss Lydia Orr begins to pour out her wealth and love on this undeserving town.
But Lydia’s lavish generosity is met with suspicion — to the point that greed, anger, and jealousy block out the undeniable glimmer of light that had been absent for 18 long years.
“Who is Miss Lydia Orr, and why has she come to Brookville?” is the question that bothers the townspeople! But is it possible that it is the townsfolk who have something to hide? Florence Morse Kingsley, author of award-winning Titus: Comrade of the Cross, pairs with Mary E. Wilkins Freeman to bring us this tale of unexpected restitution, responsibility, redemption, and restoration.
