Set in the late 1800s in a rough Pennsylvania canal town, this is the dramatic and moving story of a young girl's struggle for independence, freedom, and dignity in the face of overwhelming odds. This book eloquently captures the daily life of the working poor and the limited choices for a young person growing up there.
