In 1946, a year after Mandy's father died in World War II, Mandy, her mother, and her younger brother Ira move in with stern Aunt Bess on her northern Ohio sheep farm. Desperate to hold on to the memory of her father, Mandy dreams of returning to the house he planned to purchase. But she gets involved in school activities and tending the sheep, and when the spring floods come, must decide whether to save the sheep-committing to her new life-or cling to her dream and let the ewes and their newborn lambs drown.
