The Squire's Daughter Reviews
Sad in parts but ultimately things pretty well work out.Ralph Penlogan, the son of a poor but honest farmer, is at firm enmity with Sir John Hamblyn, the local squire, who has been sharp, ruthless and cruel in his business practices and done the Penlogan family no end of harm. But Ralph finds that his disgust for Sir John does not prevent him from admiring the Hamblyn daughter, Dorothy. Naturally she is far above him in station and wealth. She's also slightly immature, but only because she's not been brought up to think beyond the moment.This is the story of the falling...and rising...and falling...and rising tides of Ralph Penlogan's fortune, and the growing up of Dorothy. It also becomes the story of Ralph's quiet but admirable sister Ruth and the storekeeper, several years her senior, who unobtrusively falls in love with her and proves himself a friend in time of need.
