Roberta's mother, a French noblewoman, had died long before that and so there is no one to take care of them. Her father, on his deathbed, instructed Roberta to go to America, the land of his home. There, she should find her Uncle Robert, a man of decent wealth. They are, however, lacking in funds. As they approach land again, they must stretch the small amount of money they have left to reach Uncle Robert. And when they reach him, will he be as benevolent as her father hopes he is? Or will Roberta need to find a new way of obtaining an income to keep herself and her brother from starving?
