Eleven-year-old Mary Elisabeth's life will never be the same. It's 1924 and her mother has contracted tuberculosis - a deadly, terrifying disease. A far away sanatorium holds the only hope of saving her. Papa takes a grueling job at the shipyards to pay for her treatment. Mary Elisabeth must travel 350 miles from home to begin a new life on her uncle's farm. Her only connection to her parents is by letter. Will that be enough to give her courage to brave the challenges that await?

"Real-life tales skillfully woven into a fictional setting, these country adventures ring true to life and human nature."
-Elisabeth Adams, writer and editor

"Everything comfortable about a whimsically relatable childhood, but with magical surprises along the way."
-Jenni Marie, photographer and storyteller

"From its tender beginning to the heartfelt climax, the author engages her readers with wit, charm, and endurance."
-Carmen Peone, award-winning author
