|Title:||The Stone Field|
|Publisher:||Dodd, Mead & Company|
From the dust jacket: This is the story of Jobina Porte—“Jo”, a girl who was born on a western farm and whose forebears have always lived from the soil. Now, through circumstances, her family works a modest “brush” farm, once part of the vast rural estate of the Hilyards. Jobina is a contemporary of the third generation of Hilyards, who, in spite of their rapidly vanishing wealth, are still the proud and dashing country “quality.” It is Jo’s misfortune that she falls in love with Roy Hilyard, the eldest son, and permits her love to shape her life the moment she discovers it. The course of this romance and how Jo’s flaming spirit, beaten but not broken, refuses to admit defeat, and in the end claims its own peculiar victory—this is the story of THE STONE FIELD.
