But then a terrible accident happens and Katy must find the courage to remember her daydreams and the delightful plans she once schemed; for when she is grown up she wants to do something grand...A wonderful, family story, with an inspiring introduction from the hugely popular Cathy Cassidy. Plus a behind-the-scenes journey, including an author profile, a guide to who's who, activities and more...Susan Coolidge (1835-1905) was born Sarah Chauncey Woolsey in Ohio, USA.
