An early, poorer and less developed story that utilizes a similar basic plot as The Reb and the Redcoats
. Except that story is so, so much better! Three twin boys (Josset, Tandy and Laurence) are orphaned and in the small village no one can take all three, so the boys all try to run away, but are brought back. Josset is placed with young Sally's aunt and ends up hiding his two brothers in her home, all of them taking turns playing Josset. Clearly, they are eventually discovered with the happy ending that Sally's aunt is able to take in all three brothers. A simple story and a great deal less complex than her later novels.
