Alison Payne and Bettina Clarke (Linda Lee in the reprint) are being fostered by the Frazers on a trial basis for adoption. Alison has looked after Bettina/Linda ever since she was blinded in an accident. But Bettina/Linda has secretly regained her sight and is keeping it that way until she gets rid of Alison, because she does not want to share the Frazers with Alison. And Bettina/Linda is going as far as animal cruelty (below) in her tricks to get rid of Alison.
Then Bettina/Linda makes a very ironic mistake. She turns a light on while pulling another trick on Alison, while Alison distinctly remembers she had turned it off. As a blind girl would not need a light, Alison begins to suspect the truth.
