Mildred and Charlie Landreth have become the parents of a
baby boy, Percy, and have setled into quiet domestic life. When they
receive an invitation from cousins Horace and Elsie to visit the Oaks,
near Roselands, they travel there with Mildred's youngest sister, Annis,
to spend the winter in the sunny South.
Days are filled with family gatherings, visits with friends,
pony rides, and walks through the countryside, and as Christmas
approaches, they send greetings to their loved ones back home.
Annis and Elsie make time for their studies, and Elsie, whose kind and
obedient nature touches all around her, learns important lessons
about obedience, trust, and guilt. As winter ends, Mildred
Charlie, Annis, and Percy bid farewell to their relatives and begin the
trip back to their home in Pleasant Plains, Indiana. 254 pages.
