Life in a great school, where she was successful and popular, offered the brightest of prospects to Chris Stannard, the clever only daughter of a distinguished novelist. Very suddenly she came up against decidedly difficult circumstances. Her father died; money, which had always come easily to Chris, stopped and life looked gloomy. But it didn’t take her long to readjust her outlook.
