A Gift for Abigail
Originally written by Dwight Tilton, A Gift for Abigail follows the eventful life of Abigail Renier, an intelligent but poor orphan girl. Raised by her gruff but loving sailor grandfather, young Abigail leaves her job at the local mill to take a more refined position as a secretary in Mrs. Sarah Copeland's splendid mansion. As she follows her heart's desire to become a respected and esteemed lady of high society, Abigail neglects to count the cost of her determined ascent. When her eyes are finally opened to the world around her, she realizes the true treasures of life have always been with her.
