Full Plot

Writer Ruth Harper grew up in a family with strong Christian ideals, but one where poverty was primary since her father, Luke, was always away helping other families using his construction skills. Ruth ran off as a teenager to escape the poverty, wanting to live a fantasy life in far away lands. She wanted to take her brother Paul with her. Ruth's primary regret in life was advice given to Paul: instead of wearing their grandmother's shoes - the only shoes the family had for Paul - Paul should work out in the family farm's field barefoot, burying his grandmother's shoes as a symbol of not showing their poverty to the world. Because he was barefoot, Paul was bitten by a rattlesnake, the bite which killed him. Because of his death, Ruth alienated herself from the family for the rest of her life. So that Ruth can find the love of family, Othniel sends her back to her childhood as Miss Storey, collectively with Smith as door to door bible salespeople. Ruth feels her primary mission is to save Paul from the snake bite and take him away with her. But Ruth ends up learning more about her family in those three days then she ever did growing up with them. Huggo Plot not found
