John Stuart King is a well-known author. When he listens to a sermon one day about being kind to the homeless, he can't stop thinking about the issue. He decides to become a tramp himself to see what it's like--providing a good source for his next story. He discovers that no one seems to truly care about tramps. That is, until he stumbles across a family in the country. The Elliott family provides him with a job on their farm. They treat him kindly. Helen Elliott, the oldest girl in the family, is beautiful--and above all, truthful. Corey is a college boy who stumbles into some trouble by telling jokes. And Anna, the youngest, goes behind her family's back and meets a young man who is practically a stranger. John tries to help Corey and Anna, and in some respects succeeds. However, he can't help wondering what they would all think of him if they knew of his masquerade--especially Helen, with her ideals of truth.
When a lost will is recovered, will John be forced to make his true identity known? And will it cost him more than he can bear?
