Generations of a family named Whitney show bravery, humor, and fortitude. The reader is given a glimpse into the lives of the men, women, and children in this historic family. The story begins with the first Lord of Whitney in the thirteenth century in Herefordshire in western England. The reader follows successive generations of Whitneys who experience economic success, perils of a plague, and the ups and downs of daily life. The story progresses with one of the Whitneys moving to the capital city of London to begin a career in the commercial world. By the time the story comes to a climax, in the seventeenth century, the Whitneys have been caught up in the Puritan religious dissent and decide to leave England for a new life in America.
