AbstractHistoryArchive Description

An English girl arrives in Melbourne expecting to be met by her father but discovers he is dead. Determined to earn her own living she seeks work as a governess. After two hard positions she takes a place with little Jessie whose mother takes no notice of her and whose father is never home. Whilst her mother is on holidays he returns and begins to pay Alice unwelcome attentions. She resolves to leave but sickly Jessica is dying so she postpones her departure. She is finally reunited with friends, including the loving Doctor Good. Pleasantly interesting. (PB)
