'Jim Blake, whom everyone thought had been killed at the war, returns after a ten years' absence, and finds a feud existing between the people of Twin Hills, his old home, and Deep Wells, the Ridgeway holding-—a rather one-sided feud, though, for Jim's brother and sister, assisted by two faithful henchmen, are struggling hard to hold their own against the machinations of Ridgeway and his evil associates. Jim's re-appearance puts a new aspect on affairs, and things move with startling rapidity. There is a splendid love interest. Helen Ridgeway, Jim's playmate as a child, is now a sworn enemy, and the reader follows the changing phases of her mind, as the basic causes of the unfair oppression reveal themselves, with an interest which the wealth of exciting happenings never allows to flag.'
