Summary: Alice Dugdale, the eldest daughter of a village doctor and a drudge and nursemaid for his second wife, had grown up with the vicar's son John Rossiter. When he returned from the wars a major, the villagers assumed that they would marry. However, Lady Wanless had selected John as a husband for her second daughter, Georgiana, and pursued him with more vigor than tact.
