|Description:||Kay Findley's family lost their first home to a man named Tom Johnson. Kay wishes to somehow get that home back for her family. Kay asks Mr. Thorsen, the Hermit of Proud Hill, if he knows where Tom Johnson keeps his papers. The hermit asks Kay to stay away from Tom Johnson, but she won't listen.
Kay learns that Mr. Thorsen has some connection to a girl named Vivienne, who used to live in the Morgan house. Kay learns that Vivienne will inherit the Morgan house if she returns before she turns 18. Vivienne has run away to escape from the cruelty of Tom Morgan, and nobody knows where she is. Mr. Thorsen receives a message from her but is unable to track her down.
Kay, with the help of Carol and Cecy, decides to do everything she can to help Mr. Thorsen find Vivienne. Mr. Thorsen has a key to the Morgan house which he lends to the girls. They stay at the house hoping to uncover some clues to where Tom Morgan keeps his papers and where Vivienne may have gone. [Suggest a different description.]
