Christina knows it is time to put the past behind her.

The social changes brought about by the war are less than Christina has reckoned, however. Dick is an able farmer, but he had once been a servant in the very household of which he is now the master. And when Will's brother Mark returns, wounded, from the battlefields of France, he bitterly resents Dick's new position in the house that he once owned.
