At age seventeen, Helen Pendleton considered herself to be a modern woman, eager to embrace the new century. While the normal path for a female in her New York town was matrimony and children, she shocked her parents by planning to attend college and hoping to eventually become a schoolteacher. So when her neighbor, Albert, surprised her by proposing marriage, she was smugly confident in her decision to decline his offer.
Yet time and adversity changed everything.
Three years later, with her parents deceased, and college a fading memory, she's in dire straits. Her father's business is bankrupt, and she's losing her home. She is desperate, and as she reaches her lowest ebb, she receives a letter from Albert.
