Ruth Alberta Brown wrote children’s stories in the early 20th century. Her stories include Heart of Gold, Tabitha at Ivy Hall, Tabitha’s Vacation and The Lilac Lady.

SYNOPSIS: Heart of Gold begins at the ending of a day in a class of fifty students. The teacher is tired and just wants the day to end. A little girl named Peace was also looking forward to the end of school and the freedom of the out of doors. Life can change in an instant. When a ball got caught on a roof Peace went to fetch it. “Peace had reached the ball wedged in a hollow by the chimney, and with accurate aim, sent it spinning down to its white-faced, tearful owner; but as she turned to crawl back the way she had come, her foot slipped, she wavered uncertainly, and fell with a crash to the roof, rolling over and over in a vain endeavor to stop her mad career, till, with the horrified eyes of the stricken audience glued upon her, she slid over the coping and landed in a crumpled heap on the sodden turf below.”
