After surviving the rigors of Ellis Island, Maureen learns that their benefactor, Colonel Wakefield, has died. His family, refusing to own his Civil War debt, casts her out. Alone, impoverished, and in danger of deportation, Maureen obtains employment in a prominent department store.

Despite her family's disapproval, Olivia Wakefield vows to honor her father's promise but unable to find Maureen, finds unexpected help from a local businessman, whom she hopes will become more than an ally.
