But when Samuel’s unscrupulous brother takes over the family business and leaves Molly to fend for herself, she knows she must head out on her own. It is a dangerous journey and Molly has to leave her old life behind. Somehow she must find a way to make a living, keep her family together, and fend off some over-eager suitors.

Why the author wrote this book:

To give a voice to the lives of women in the 1830's. The story was inspired by the life of one of my female ancestors. Most of the events in the first chapter really happened to her.
