is still blaming herself for the deaths of her two young brothers.
She can't bear to look at the empty seats at the dinner table any longer.
So she sets out to find a job in town. The year is 1888 and it isn't
easy to find work for a young girl. But Hannah has seen a flyer announcing
a job that includes room and board. When she inquires at the address,
she is told that the position is filled but if she comes back the next
day, perhaps there will be another position open. After getting her
father's permission to move to town, Hannah finds that she is now working
along side Isaac, the young man her father has forbidden her to see.
Isaac has his own reasons for leaving home. The two teens learn to
work together and share the changing times they are living through.
