Living by the seashore brings many varied and exciting experiences for Gatty. Although wild storms over the water are always a threat to life and property, still Gatty loves her seaside home and thrives on each facet of a fisherman's life.
Gatty's daily responsibilities include caring for Elsie, her crippled sister. But most days also find her playing outdoors with the salty sea breezes in her face or exploring the dismal dungeons near the old outbuildings.
In the dungeons one day Gatty meets an unexpected surprise that eventually brings about a joyful change in her family's circumstances.
Learn and grow with this God-fearing family as they endeavor to live by Father's motto: "Whether therefore ye, eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God."
