(New York: Farrar, Straus & Giroux , 1992), 'Lucy Farr is visiting a distant relative, Mr. Mudd. He lives in a wonderful house, full of interesting - and expensive - antiques. When Mr. Mudd gives her a beautiful ruby ring, Lucy is overjoyed. But, he says, it's far too valuable to be worn, and he puts it in a velvet box for safekeeping. Lucy can't help thinking: What good is a ring that cannot be worn? What good are any of the things Mr. Mudd has, if they can't be used and enjoyed? When she decides to wear the ring anyway, both Lucy and Mr. Mudd discover what is truly valuable.'
