The Lonely Plough is the story of a landed estate, and of a big flood on a northern marsh, bringing out the loyalty of the north-country character, not only to the living but to the dead. It endeavors to show the value of the three-cornered relationship between landlord, agent and tenant, when each is an honest man, living to his standard, and having confidence in the others. Especially it points out the difficult position of the steward, the responsibility resting upon him, and of the many qualifications he is expected to possess.
