The Whitneys seem relatively untouched by the depression, often hosting house parties, and it is into the midst of one of these that Amory arrives. Mrs. Whitneys nephew Gareth is visiting and becomes Amorys instant friend, despite the social gap. But he is a daredevil pilot and soon off on a new adventure. Amory's heart goes with him, praying for his return, especially after his plane is reported missing.
