Hearts to Mend

Plot

Young Meg Roberts of Merrybrooke Farm took a great interest in helping with the problem children from a nearby home. One of her visitors is 10- year-old Tommy Spurrier, who has been told so often that he is clumsy that now he has lost all confidence in himself and stammers badly.

The story reappeared in the 80s with a different artist and the girl was now called Chris Bowen but she still helped children from Marley Grange children’s home.
