Less than a year ago, Maggie had a family, a good life and was happy in her home in France. That was before the decision was made to move to the new colonies of America. Maggie's family died and left her an orphan in a strange land. She was taken in as an indentured servant by a family. Now this family has decided to move to the wilderness of Maine. For thirteen year old Maggie, the thought of living in that cold wild place brought fear. What will life be like? Will they survive against nature in the north? To find out what colonial life was like, this is the book for you.
