Liz Hawtin had a hard time at the best of times. When her dad died and entrusted his estate to his sister for Liz's care. However, Liz was made to feel like a boarder. The money ran out just as Liz's school was evacuated to the country because so many bombs were falling on London. This story is about her adjustment to the personalities of the people who had wanted a boy but who had taken her in. It's about her trip back to London to rescue her cousin and it's about her becoming one of the family for the first time in her life.
