Rose Westfield’s Uncle Joshua has gambled away most of the family’s prized possessions. Then he makes a wager with Sir Ralph Granger, staking all the money Sir Ralph has won from him against Rose’s horse Midnight that she can ride from Land’s End to John O’Groats in ten days. If she fails, she loses Midnight, but agrees to the race on condition her Uncle Josh give up gambling. Rose is confident of winning, but is up against added difficulties of Sir Ralph’s groom Sykes out to stop her and then her eyesight beginning to fail after a blow to her head.
