Nelly is considered by many to be the prettiest and most fun-loving girl in town. What happens to Nelly in the ensuing years after Peggy leaves Riverbank for college and then abroad is related through Peggy’s infrequent visits back home and the letters she receives from one of the older women of Riverbank.
