After the death of her mother, Mollie Barnes was lucky to be taken in by her Aunt Rose and Uncle Sam. Over the years, Mollie learns to live with her Aunt's resentment, but after an angry outburst from Rose, she inadvertently discovers the shocking truth about her parentage. Every day, Mollie has been working by the shore under the shadow of the big house, but now she knows that the master of the house, James Grainger, is her real father. When Charlotte Grainger gets stranded on the beach one day, Mollie comes to her aid, and the girls become friends. Through Charlotte, Mollie gains access to the house - but things don't quite go according to plan.
