"Retired from the oldest profession and now more or less respectable, Jenny Royster holds sway over a colourful household in the cold shadow of the Ruggard Cross Church.  "I'm Jenny by name, and Jenny by nature, and won't be changed even by legislature," says the buxom, big-hearted landlady and fills her house with the town's lame ducks.  Star-borders at the moment are Veasy Goodwillie, a midget on winter vacation from the circus, who keeps Jenny warm on cold nights, and Betty Woodruff, who has become a town scandal because of her frequent and indiscriminate visits to the less respectable motels."
