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?
