"Aunt Charlotte rose with great dignity form her chair, and was about to address herself vehemently to Tony when Old Oliver interrupted her. "Charlotte," he said. "The boy's a good boy, and he's a help to me. I couldn't send him away. He's one of the Lord's poor little ones ... without a father or mother, and I must do all I can for him ... You mustn't come betwixt me and Tony." But Aunt Charlotte has her words and Tony is alone in London again. What will happen to little Dolly? And if Tony can't be with the good Old Oliver and Dolly, maybe he should go to the other side with Clever Dog Tom. Words can save and words can hurt. Alone in London is a story of redemption of relationships"--Page 2 of cover
