The story of two sisters of Prudence of the parsonage. Carol marries David Duke, a minister, and after a happy year in St. Louis they are obliged to go West for David's health. They bravely fight "T.B.'s" and bring much good cheer to the other health seekers. Connie, who works in a Chicago publishing house, brings fun and a romance into the story. Simple, a trifle sentimental, and popular.
