Mabel Gordon is a Southern girl whose family was ruined by the Civil War. A wealthy New Yorker takes Mabel under her wing. Mrs. Rowland pays for Mabel’s education, and Mabel serves the Rowland family as a secretary and nurse. Complications arise when Mrs. Rowland’s brother, Colonel Chester, woos Mabel. The colonel’s actions in the Civil War directly harmed the Gordon family, so Mabel’s heart is not easily thawed. The action moves back and forth between North Carolina and New York.
