Excerpt

"That's my brave girl! I knew you would be no coward."

Harold watched his sister with mingled pity and amusement.

****.

The vain and spoiled Rhoda goes away to boarding school and meets Tom and Evie who are very influental in her life. When a horrible accident happens (that she causes) Rhoda matures into the young woman she was meant to be. A good read.
