Over a hundred years ago, it was not uncommon for young girls to leave home and work on farms nearby.  Emily was one of these girls.  When she was 12, her family sent her to work on a nearby farm.  She cooked and cleaned and helped out with the children.  The family loved her and were devastated when she became ill.  What will happen to Emily?
