Abstract:

Impoverished Anna Moore lives in a New England village with her elderly mother. Anna sets out to petition her wealthy city-dwelling Aunt Emma for help. At Aunt Emma's Anna meets rich, idle, womanizer Lennox Sanderson, who uses a mock marriage to compel her surrender to his seduction. When Anna announces that she is pregnant, the cad reveals the truth then deserts her. Anna's baby dies, her mother passes away. Abandoned and orphaned she finds refuge working on the Bartlett farm--a shamed woman who only wishes to keep her secret. David Bartlett has fallen in love with the gentle servant girl, however, and refuses to let the Puritanical justifications of a stuffy and unfeeling society alter his feelings.
