The plot is focused on a lovely young woman, the daughter of a rough, tough, and mean farmer in Scotland who never really seemed to care about her. It's the dawn of the 20th century, and women didn't have nearly as many rights then as they do now. So, she had to spend 6 challenging years side by side with the man. Chris wasn't the only kid the farmer had, but she went through more struggles than the others. It wasn't all bad, and she was able to find love and happiness with a valiant man. But the girl had big dreams and wanted to make a name for herself, and while some of them came true, others didn't. With so many obstacles behind her back, she felt empty and lonely at the end.
