The Soldier's Girl
by: Mary Jane Staples
Pretty, young Maisie Gibbs is a conscientious young woman, though life is harder since both her parents passed away. She is relieved when she finds a position as a housemaid in Kensington, under the watchful eye of the formidable housekeeper, Mrs. Carpenter, and she quickly settles in.
When she meets a handsome young soldier, she is tempted to give him his marching orders. But gradually Corporal Daniel Adams starts to win her over.
When tragedy strikes the Fairfax household, Maisie is lucky she has Daniel to rely on — a good sign of things to come?
