World War II, the need for factory workers in the cities caused many rural
people to leave their family homes and move to the city. This was very
difficult for people who had never experienced life in the city. When Gertie
Nevels' husband tells her he is moving the family to Detroit, she is devastated.
She has just secretly saved enough money to buy her own piece of land.
Now her dream is put on hold for her to follow her husband. This book tells
of the difficult adjustment the family makes and how these once proud people
were made to feel inferior to the city people. Find out if Gertie ever
realizes her dream of owning her own piece of land.
