As Richmond matures in the early twentieth century, Grace Arents, the niece of Lewis Ginter, builds schools for the public, starts the first lending library, and continues her uncle’s philanthropic legacy. Already a confirmed spinster with no ideations of marriage, she finds herself drawn to one of the many teachers she hires to educate the children of Richmond.
