Enter the girl down the road. Her parents are German immigrants, and Emma wants to be a business woman. She has no interest in marriage. However, she sees a way to get out from under her parents thumb. When Sam drops in on the family, his only interest is hiring one of the daughters to clean the house he grew up in and to take care of Harry and Sam’s half-sister, Mary, from Harry's third marriage. Eleven-year-old Mary hates Emma because she makes her bathe and keep her room clean. Mary is an unruly character, but is very protective of her father. I liked her a lot.
After taking care of Harry’s debts, Sam sets credit up for him at some local stores and takes off to tend to his business dealings. When he returns several weeks later to see how Emma is working out, he is quite pleased with the condition of the house, garden, and other things around the property.

She is quite efficient in her small business and keeps meticulous records.Read more ›
