Chapter one is titled; “Come Back From The Grave.”
“His name was Owen Redgrave. He wore a ragged coat, he had not a shilling in the wide world wherewith to bless himself, and yet he was one of the happiest men in the world. He stood beneath the leafy porch of his mother’s house, one calm summer night, and traced with tear-dimmed eyes the winding road in the valley before him, along which, scarce six hours ago, he had wearily dragged his blistered feet, faint-hearted and despairing- a homeless outcast.”
“He had led a wild life at home and abroad. He had been reckless, profligate, criminal. But that was all over now. He was going to begin life afresh.”
