It tells about a girl whose father has gone to Virginia, America
His kids are living in England and all of a sudden their mother dies.
The only thing that the children have from him is a doorknob in the shape of the head of a lion
So they (the children; Amanda, Jemmy, and Meg) go on a boat to Virginia.
They overcome many hardships but in the end, they find their father in a cabin in Jamestown.
The doorknob shines as brightly like never before.
