Characters
Dagny Fleming; Dr. Jeff Faren; Mrs. Whitcomb
Synopsis
Dagny cherishes her privacy and buys a small isolated farm where she can have as much privacy as she wants. She believes her neighbors are nosy gossips and avoids them, but falls in love with handsome, young local doctor Jeff Faren. He is annoyed with her coldness to the people of the community and eventually drops her. One winter night, Dagny breaks her leg tumbling down a staircase at home and remains unconscious on the floor for days. She wakes to find herself in her own bed surrounded by neighbors who have braved a blizzard to rescue her. She is deeply touched by their goodness and regrets her selfish, inconsiderate ways. Jeff arrives to set her leg and applauds her change of heart. They embrace.

Indexer Notes

In the splash panel, although the caption correctly refers to Jeff, Dagny's dialogue balloon calls him "Jim."
