This was a Reader's Digest version from 1957! The story of a small boy whose father disappears and when it becomes obvious he is not returning for the boy, he is sent for by his uncle. The uncle's wife, however is the "Lady" and who the whole story revolves around. It takes place back in the sheep/cattle conflicts time and is a good read. This is one I think would be far better if it was the full version. It did end rather abruptly. At least in this version. I still liked it!
