|Title:||Mr. Wycherly's Wards|
|Publisher:||Charles Scribner's Sons|
The story launches with Mr. Wycherly's relocation from rural Scotland to Oxford with his two adopted boys. They find themselves underequipped to deal with housekeeping necessities in this new place, but approach the difficulties with fortitude and good humor. Eventually a kind wife of an old friend comes to their rescue. The orphaned niece of a new housekeeper also makes her way into Mr. Wycherley's heart—much to the chagrin of her good-hearted housekeeper who feels that her niece should behave according to her station as a household servant.
While the young Jane-Anne has a heart devoted to God and Mr. Wycherly and wishes, in the main, to serve them both, she has an active mind and temperment that distracts her from finding fulfillment in housekeeping necessities. The driving concern of the story becomes Mr. Wycherly's conundrum of how direct his new ward in her path of life.
This book is the sequel to Miss Esperance and Mr. Wycherly.
