Additional Info

Old Hobson is an exasperated, penny-pinching bootmaker with three eligible daughters, but the eldest, Maggie, is his most valuable business asset. Just when it seems life and love have passed her by, the wise and winning Maggie rebels and sets up her own shop, taking her father’s best bootmaker, Will Mossop, along with her. The transformation of this humble chap, as well as Maggie’s blossoming, is a touching, comic delight.
