Synopsis for "The Hill"

A young girl named Rose O'Hara is brought to the Howlett estate by Mr. Kenneth, the family's chauffer. She is to be young James' companion. On arrival, she meets Dog Logan and the head maid, Mrs. Hopkins, who warns her of the boy and his father, Thomas. Rose meets master John and his father, a grumpy old man. She spends most of her time either writing in her diary or watching James and Dog play. Rose, James, and Dog all become great friends, and Dog even saves Logan from drowning. When the adults find out, the eldest Howlett tells Thomas that he should punish his son. At home, Thomas gets drunk and beats his boy. Rose and James are in the maze when Dog shows up only to run away. On Christmas, John and his father fight, Rose is sad, James gets a puppy, and John gives Dog a toy train, which upsets his father.
