With the tragic death of her father in 1915, Allison McKelvey was sent to live with three old maids. These women were active in THE OLD MAIDS CLUB in which membership was mandatory, not voluntary. Mandatory because each of the three women, fifty years earlier, had stood on a balcony and waved her handkerchief as her beau rode off to fight the invading Yankees. None of their young men returned. Neither did their brothers, cousins, uncles or fathers. Others returned maimed and crippled, broken in both body and spirit, uale to assist in rebuilding the South. And into this club came young Allison, or orphan with her whole life before her. Some changes were about to be made in the OLD MAID'S CLUB.
