Georgie is a cheerful and
carefree girl who loves her two older brothers very much. Having
grown up with Abel and Arthur, the three are very close, and do
everything together. What Georgie doesn't know is that as a baby
she was found with her dying mother, and was taken in by this
family. Her mother left her a special golden bracelet which she
wears constantly, but Georgie has no idea of her true past. Abel
and Arthur have always treated her as their younger sister, and
their father thought of Georgie as his own as well. Sadly, he
passed away after saving Georgie during a storm when she was
young, and her mother has resented the girl for his death. Her
adoptive mother does not like Georgie as much as her own sons, and
dislikes the fact that they both adore her so much. Georgie cannot
understand why her mother treats her unkindly, but still she cares
for her. She wants her mother's approval and love very
Georgie is a very
innocent girl, who, when doing laundry, will strip the clothes
right off of her brothers, despite their protests. One day when
out riding her horse across the fields of Australia (and enjoying
some delicious food Arthur prepared for her), she leaps over a
young man, sending him tumbling out of the way straight into a
stream. Georgie, so absorbed in her meal, doesn't even notice, but
since she drops her lunchbox, she quickly turns back and sees him.
Fortunately he was not harmed at all, but his fancy-looking
clothes are soaked. Without a second thought Georgie naively pulls
the wet garments off of him so they can dry out on the grass. The
blonde boy is completely taken aback by this girl, the likes of
which he's never met before. Georgie suddenly realizes as she
looks at him that she can't treat just any boy like her brothers!
Very embarrassed, she hastily throws his sopping pants in his face
and runs off!
Georgie and Abel see a
crowd in town and hear that two famous rich people from England
are going on the train, namely Lowell J. Gray, descendant of a
navy captain and his fiancee, a princess. Abel hoists Georgie up
onto his shoulders so she can see them. Lowell turns around....
and it is none other than the boy she met by the stream that
That night Georgie finds
herself thinking about Lowell's gentle blue eyes. Later Georgie,
very skilled at throwing a boomerang, enters a competition. Only
boys are allowed, so she dresses as a boy and ties her flowing
blonde hair up under a cap. After she finishes in first place, the
reward is announced: a kiss from Elise, a princess of England.
Georgie takes off the cap before Elise can kiss her, revealing
that she's not really a boy. Lowell is present, and approaches
Georgie. He places his hands on her arms and kisses her! Abel,
Arthur, and fiancee Elise can only look on in shock. When Lowell
pulls away Georgie slides to the ground, dazed. Abel is furious.
"You jerk!" he yells, and punches the young man.
Georgie finds that she is
in love with the romantic and kind Lowell. He loves her in return.
Before departing for home Lowell promises to return and marry her
one day. Georgie realizes that she cannot bear to be apart from
him, so she arranges to sail to England after him.
Unknown to Georgie, Abel
has been attracted to her for many years. He had gone to sea in
order to not feel the lonely pain of loving her, unable to show it
because of their brother-sister relationship. Finally he has
returned in time to discover Lowell could take away the girl he
loves forever. Abel follows her to England. He won't giver her up
without a fight.
One of the most
interesting aspects of this series is that is it a dramatic love
story, but who Georgie will end up with is a mystery until the
end. In most stories it is easy to tell from the beginning who the
main couple is, but in Georgie! you'll enjoy the suspense of not
knowing what will develop in the relationships.
What will happen on
Georgie's jouney to England? Lowell is not expecting her.... will
she find him to be faithful to his promise? What about his
fiancee? And what of determined Abel and sweet Arthur?
