A daddy long legs is a spider with very long and thin legs. Jerusha Abbott, an eighteen-year-old orphan, calls her mysterious benefactor this because she has only seen his shadow with its long and slim legs. This unknown man helps her attend college; in return she has to write him about everything she does without expecting him to answer her letters. But love is hidden where she would never dream to find it.
