Follow Doris Dunbar through the ups and downs of a daunting future. An unwise business investment leaves John Edward Dunbar's children practically penniless after his death--and his eldest daughter, Doris, to bear the brunt of the trials that come. Between the bill collectors, her demanding stepmother, and her brother's hasty marriage to a gold digger, it's hard for Doris to keep hope alive. Until Scottish businessman Angus Macdonald offers a picture-perfect solution to Doris's dwindling hope. But despite the seemingly easy salvation, will this blessing yield more hurt than help?
