Taken By the Hand is the story of Beatrice Dobie, a rather quiet young woman who is used to living in the shadow of her outgoing mother. But when her mother gets sick, Beatrice must face the idea of a future without her. Sadly, her mother does die. All of their friends – really her mother’s friends – worry about Beatrice, knowing how ill-prepared she is to face the world on her own. What she really needs, they decide, is someone to take her by the hand and guide her through life, as her mother had done. But Beatrice is not entirely alone in the world and moves to London to stay with her elder brother and his family. Though she gets along rather well with her much older brother, the rest of his family is awful and Beatrice feels perpetually out of place. It isn’t until she makes friends with the cheerful Sellars family that she really starts to be happy again. [Suggest a different description.]
