Mignon Massey is devastated when she has to leave her lovely home in Tuscany and move to England to live with her uncle and his family. Her fear, that she will not be welcome, is soon realized. In England she is determined to live out her strong Christian faith, in the face of hostility and misunderstanding, by her actions rather than her words. An elderly neighbour Mignon rescues in a storm becomes her only friend, although the young owner of a local farm seems to be taking an interest in the newcomer from Italy. Originally published for younger readers, this is a story that will be enjoyed by all ages.
