An uncle and his wife, Sir Bertram and Lady Sylvia Thornber, offered them a home. Prudence hoped for a musical career, but at Thornber Hall, they were forced to work as servants. Prudence was ordered to travel to London with a violinist, Professor Florenzo. as his accompanist on a tour of the Music Halls. Prudence was very worried about Philip, who had been sent to work with a bullying shepherd.
