Liddyas situation worsens when he loses his mother and is placed in the home of his Uncle Lester. The hero in the story is Ed Mallory, a half-blind mailman who loves the boy, as does his wife Lily. They are foiled in their attempt to adopt Liddy and watch the child endure a miserable life with Lester Beaman. Liddy escapes his dark childhood by pretending to ride a magic carpet with a stray dog he calls Lady, but the brightest ray is a visit with Ed and Lily Mallory. When Lester is in desperate need of whiskey, he rents the boy to Ed. Liddy is literally put through fire. Will Liddy come out into the loving arms of Lily and Ed Mallory?
