Read an Excerpt
The year is 1899. You are thirteen years old and you live on a farm out west. It doesn't matter where- all you know is that it feels like the end of the earth.
You sit at the table after (linner late one night, staring at a wondrous book. It's printed in color, for heaven's sake, and inside there are things from all over the world Taffeta silk petticoats and oak chifforob es, cream separators and fancy new single-strap buggy harnesses.
A coat trimmed in velvet catches your eye. (Or maybe it's the woman's fashionable Gibson upsweep. How does she do that?) Someday, you think, I'll wear my hair up and have a coat like that. And in that one moment, you no longer feel alone. You know there is a world out there and, what's more, that you can become part of it.
ALL THIS - FROM A CATALOG.
