"Ophelia Von Tresco, daughter of the owner of a vast South Carolina plantation, was born to immense wealth and reared in the still-living cultural traditions of the Old South. She has many suitors, among them two of exceptional endowments-Edwin, heir to riches, and Christopher, a young man of modest means. Her choice between them brings her to understanding of the richer wealth that gives life its finest, truest meaning. A richer wealth-the riches of the spirit that transcend the material-is to come to Ophelia, but not before this beautiful girl, accustomed to every luxury that generous parents can provide, knows suffering, and a testing of her faith in the sorrows of sudden, tragic loss."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall; Signed by Author
